One of the items the instructor made commit to was for fire blocking. Stating that in the past fire blocking in the Cal. Bldg. Code was never meant to be or said that the fire blocking was to be both horizonal and vertical. Which made for some people to wake up and take notice, some interesting comebacks.
Question here is; do you feel the older codes, 2001 CBC Chapter 7 section 708, 1998 CBC Chapter 7 section 708, 1994 CBC Chapter 7 section 708, 1991 CBC Chapter 25 section 2516 (f) 2A, the fire blocking was meant to be both vertical and horizonal at the required location indicated?
All comments one way or other will be greatly appreciated.
