program covers a number of advanced topics over a three-day period including
the spacing and location of storage sprinklers, hydraulic calculations (Darcy-Weisbach,
Velocity Pressures, and Hardy Cross loop analysis), fire pump sizing (for
situations with multiple pumps and situations with multiple water supplies),
and a variety of other advanced installation issues.
Due to the advanced nature of the program, it
is an excellent study session for those people seeking NICET Level III and
Level IV certification.
is that the participant will already know how to use the Hazen-Williams
friction loss equation.
Number of Modules: 19
Learning Outcomes: By
the end of the program, the participant will be able to:
input to the NFPA process on the development of codes and standards.
hydraulic calculations for sprinkler systems where the sprinklers are not at uniform
hydraulic calculations using the room design method.
friction loss using the Darcy-Weisbach method.
hydraulic calculations using the Velocity Pressure method.
a sprinkler system with CMSA and ESFR sprinklers with proper sprinkler spacing
and location while avoiding unacceptable obstructions.
a sprinkler system to protect a freezer/cooler.
the flow of water around a loop or grid using Hardy Cross loop analysis.
the suction pressure at a fire pump given the water supply conditions.
proper size fire pumps for situations with multiple pumps and/or situations
with multiple water supplies.
the computer fire models that engineers use to justify the installation of
sprinkler systems with variations from the prescriptive rules of NFPA
work done by others and recognize the proper application of NFPA standards.
