This well illustrated, step-by-step approach is a vital reference for every inspector and designer of fire protection, sprinkler, architectural or engineering systems. Hydraulic calculations for the most commonly-encountered water-based fire protection systems are covered in detail. Manual hydraulic calculations are thoroughly covered and a computer disk is included providing the reader with the opportunity to calculate a wide variety of systems. Factors of successful design such as quality assurance, coordination, and ethical practice are covered to provide a realistic perspective on professional application of the methods presented. The latest technology, including the design of high speed water spray systems and water mist systems, is presented to reinforce the advances in water-based fire protection systems.
