The overall goal is to develop research-based code change proposals for AISC Specification 360-XX (Appendix 4-Fire Design) to include structural performance-based design methodology and / or standard fire ratings for CF-CPSW walls and floor-to-wall connections while accounting for the effects of different material, geometric, loading, and fire (heating) scenarios.

Task 1 – Testing Walls Under Fire Loading
Task 2 – Testing Connections & Walls Under Fire Loading
Task 3 – Numerical Modeling and Benchmarking
Task 4 – Parametric Studies and Analysis
Task 5 – Design Tools, Guidelines, and Final Report
