ENFP 310: Water-based Fire Protection Systems Design
Fire test with a MLRS pod
FIRE Center Sponsor: SimplexGrinnell
- Fluid Mechanics (Enfp300)
- Heat and Mass Transfer (ENFP 312).
- NFPA13, which can be accessed free of charge at www.nfpa.org.
- This course will present students with an introduction to aqueous fire suppression systems. Key fluid dynamic and heat transfer processes will be covered so that students can design and analyze a water based fire protection system. This ability will be demonstrated through a sprinkler design project at the end of the semester.
Upon completing this course, the student should be able to:
- Identify sprinkler design criteria in accordance with nationally recognized standards
- Specify the types, locations and positions of sprinklers in a building
- Perform hydraulic calculations to determine the demand of a sprinkler system
- Evaluate whether a given water supply is adequate for a system
- Water based fire protection system design
- Pipe hydraulics
- Sprinkler spray physics
- Fire pump systems
- Sprinkler system design
