Online- Fire Protection Hydraulics and Water Supply Analysis

Price: $349

Good fire protection requires an adequate water supply and the credibility of a fire protection specialist is tested when it becomes necessary to establish:

  • The quantity and pressure of water needed to provide adequate fire protection
  • The ability of existing water supply systems to provide fire protection in addition to domestic and industrial requirements.
  • The adequacy of a water supply in conjunction with a particular piping system to provide effective automatic sprinkler protection.
  • Alternatives for improving deficiencies.

This course focuses on each of these points by applying the basics of fluid mechanics and the practical aspects of fire protection hydraulics. A solid foundation in fire protection hydraulics, with emphasis on testing and calculation procedures is provided by attending this course.
