*In this article, will demonstrate some of the basics for carrying out fire sprinkler calculations by the long hand method with just the aid of a scientific calculator or our own hydraulic calculator - Hcal2 which you can freely download from our website. We will for this example use simple three sprinklers and three pipes which would of course be part of a much larger fire sprinkler system. These basic procedures can also be used for calculating many other types of systems such as fire hydrant, hose reel or the discharge from a water cannon or monitor we can also use the same principal for almost all other water-based fire protection systems if we have a k-factor for the output device fire sprinkler, water mist nozzle and so on.*

In this article, will demonstrate some of the basics for carrying out fire sprinkler calculations by the long hand method with just the aid of a scientific calculator or our own hydraulic calculator - Hcal2 which you can freely download from our website. We will for this example use simple three sprinklers and three pipes which would of course be part of a much larger fire sprinkler system. These basic procedures can also be used for calculating many other types of systems such as fire hydrant, hose reel or the discharge from a water cannon or monitor we can also use the same principal for almost all other water-based fire protection systems if we have a k-factor for the output device fire sprinkler, water mist nozzle and so on.

In this example, will we use a very simple system with just three sprinklers and three pipes this is often called a range pipe or branch pipe, which is part of a larger 'tree system'.

A tree system is 'end feed', that is water is only fed from one direction as opposed to a grid or loop system when water may arrive at the sprinkler head from more than one direction.

Below is a diagram of the three sprinklers and three pipes which we will calculate. We have dimensioned the pipe lengths and given each junction point a unique node reference number which we use throughout the calculations. For each pipe, we need to know the pipe length, internal diameter ID of the pipe and the pipe material so we can determine the pipes c-factor, the table below summarises the pipe data which we will need for the calculation for this example:.

We will also we will need some additional information such as the type sprinkler head, the area each head is covering, the design density for each sprinkler head in the system. In this example, we have kept it very simple and used the same sprinkler head for all three sprinklers but this may not always be the case so again it may be useful to summarises the information in a table such as this:.

The first step is to calculate the minimum flow which will be required at the most remote sprinkler which in this case is at node [], this is a two-step process as will need to calculate the minimum flow required to satisfy the 7. We will first calculate the flow given the design density of 7.

The second step is to calculate the minimum flow from the sprinkler given the K-Factor and the minimum head pressure by using the standard K-Factor formula :. By comparing the two calculations above we can see that the minimum flow required from the sprinkler head will be We can also see that the minimum sprinkler pressure of 0.

We have now determined the minimum pressure and flow for the first sprinkler at node [] which will be We know that the flow rate from the sprinkler at node [] is As the pipe has an internal diameter of The pressure loss in the first pipe is 0. We now need to add the pressure loss in the pipe to the start pressure at the sprinkler head at node [] which was 1. The next step is to find the flow from the seconded sprinkler head at node [] to do this we will use the K-Factor formula.

This gives 70 x 1. Having found the total flow in the seconded pipe []-[] we can now find the pressure loss in, to do this we will use the Hazen-Williams pressure loss, formula 4 which we used above this gives us:.

We now add the pressure loss 0. We now need to find the flow from the sprinkler at node [] we do this by using the k-factor given in equation 5 as we now know the pressure at node [] is 1. We now add this flow to the flow in the seconded pipe []-[] to find the total flow in the third pipe []-[] which will give us the flow of The last step is to find the pressure loss in the third pipe []-[] and again we will use the Hazen-Williams pressure loss formula given is formula 4 above.

However, the last pipe has an internal diameter of We now add the pressure loss in this pipe to the pressure at node [] to find the pressure at node [] this will be 0. We have now completed the calculation for all three sprinkler heads and have found the source pressure and flow required for this system is:. This pressure and flow is often referred to as the source requirement for the system and is the minimum pressure and flow required for the system for it to be able to provide the required design density in this example 7.

You should also be able to see that only the Most Remote Head has the minimum requirement of 7. How to calculate a fire sprinkler system. For this example, we will use the following design parameters: design density: 7.

We have now completed the calculation for all three sprinkler heads and have found the source pressure and flow required for this system is: If the calculation in step 2 is the highest flow demand, then calculate the required head pressure otherwise we can use the minimum sprinkler pressure in step 1.

Calculate the pressure loss in the pipe. Add the head pressure to the pressure loss in step 4 to determine the pressure at the next sprinkler. Use the k-factor formula to determine the flow from the sprinkler head. Repeat step 4 to 6 until you do not have any more sprinklers or pipes. K-Factor formula.

## Piping Layout for Fire Sprinkler System

Piping layout for fire sprinkler system: An overview Kshitiz Vishnoi. With increased urbanization, and construction of complex infrastructures like advanced Design flow direction warehouses, factories, power distribution centers, refineries, multi-storied residential and commercial buildings, etc. Earlier, piping design was done by using many manual calculations and formulation methods. This made piping design a laborious and time-consuming process and it was also prone to large amount of errors. This not only reduces the computation times, but also allows us to have a virtual simulation of the chosen design, thereby giving us Water flow direction a better idea about how effective the chosen piping design will be before it is implemented, thus allowing us to fine tune the design for better output and also reducing the errors. In this paper, we Figure System design vs water flow direction highlight the requirements of a good piping system, and we elaborate upon the various steps involved in designing of such Requirements of an Adequate Distribution System: systems, and choosing the suitable type of piping layout for the For an adequate water distribution system, the requirements required conditions such as available pressure, consumption are as follows: demand, flow rate, etc.

## NFPA 20: Fire pump design

A fire sprinkler system is an active fire protection method, consisting of a water supply system, providing adequate pressure and flowrate to a water distribution piping system, onto which fire sprinklers are connected. Although historically only used in factories and large commercial buildings, systems for homes and small buildings are now available at a cost-effective price. Leonardo da Vinci designed a sprinkler system in the 15th century. Leonardo automated his patron's kitchen with a super-oven and a system of conveyor belts.
