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.
