The research has had $235,000 in funding commitments primarily from NSERC allocated since 2013 to consider developing sustainable materials such as Timber for use in Canadian infrastructure. We are currently looking at engineered timber. Our work currently considers the effect of adhesive breakdown in high temperature, full scale compartment testing, and mechanical behaviour in various damage states. We are also currently collaborating on new measurement technologies in this project with NIST in the United States.
