COMPANION NOTES FOR WEEK 6 LECTURE Example 13.1 An occupancy, considered Ordinary Hazard, Group 2 by NFPA 13 with a design area of 2,000 square feet (186 m2) will be used. The required design density from NFPA 13 is 0.19 gpm/ft2 [7mm/min]. Each sprinkler being used has a 120ft2 (11.1 m2) area of coverage. Establish the number of sprinklers contained in the design area? Example 13.2 Determine the width of the design area from example 13.1? Example 13.3 Using the information from example 13.1, calculate the required minimum flow from the first sprinkler? Example 13.4 Using the information from example 13.1, calculate the minimum pressure from the first sprinkler? EQUATIONS Equation 13.1 – Establish the number of sprinklers in the design area Not only must the size of the design area be determined, but from a practical standpoint, the designer must know how many sprinklers compose the design area. This is done by application of the following formula: #! != #” Where: N=the number of sprinklers in the design area. Ad=the size of the design area [ft2 or m2] As=the actual area protected per individual sprinklers [ft2 or m2] Equation 13.2 – Determine the shape and location of the design area Need to establish the shape and location of the design area. Chapter 22 of NFPA 13 requires the design area to be rectangular with a width parallel to the branch lines of at least 1.2 times the square root of the design area. However, other authorities may require a factor of 1.4. The larger the factor, the more demanding the system will be. Thus, the minimum width of the design area is calculated as follows: $ = 1.2 (*+,-./ #0+1)#.% Where: W=width of the design area [ft or m] Design area=design area [ft2 or m2] Equation 13.3 – Required minimum flow from the first sprinkler The required minimum flow from the first sprinkler (and actually an sprinkler on the system) is determined as follows: 3 = (4+,-./ 4+/,-56)(10+1 76 ,80-/9:+0) Where: q=flow rate [gpm or L/min] Design density = [gpm/ft2 or mm/min] Area by sprinkler [ft2 or m2] Equation 13.4 – Required minimum pressure for the first sprinkler The pressure required to deliver the minimum flow from the first sprinkler is computed as follows: 3 & ;=< = 9 Where: P=the required pressure [psi or bar] q=required flow at the first sprinkler [gpm or L/min] k=k-factor, the nominal discharge coefficient of the sprinklers being used Hazen-Williams Formula Application and Manipulation The Hazen-Williams formula can be manipulated to develop relationships and equations which are useful in analysis of water systems. Equation 5.6a and 5.6b above indicate friction loss in psi/ft or bar/m. Equation 5.7a – Hazen-Williams for pipe length-English Units By adding L to the numerator to represent a pipe length, the loss in any length of pipe can be represented by the following equation: ;’ = Where: (4.52)(@)(.)% (A) (B)(.)% (*)*.)+ PT=the pressure loss to friction in [psi] for specified pipe length Q=flow rate [gpm] C=the Hazen-Williams coefficient of roughness D=the internal diameter of the pipe [in] L=length of pipe [ft] Equation 5.7b – Hazen-Williams for pipe length-SI Units: ;’ = Where: (6.05)(@)(.)% (10)% (A) (B)(.)% (*)*.)+ PT=the pressure loss to friction in [bar] for specified pipe length Q=flow rate [L/min] C=the Hazen-Williams coefficient of roughness D=the internal diameter of the pipe [mm] L=length of pipe [m] Assuming that two different situations are to be represented, the friction loss for each would be as follows: Equation 5.8 ;'( Equation 5.9 (6.05)(@( )(.)% (10)% (A( ) = (B( )(.)% (*( )*.)+ ;’& = (6.05)(@& )(.)% (10)% (A& ) (B& )(.)% (*& )*.)+ If for example, L1=L2, C1=C2, D1=D2, and if equation 5.8 is divided by Equation 5.9, the following relationship results: Equation 5.10 This equation is the same regardless of English or SI units. This equation is helpful if you have a piping situation, if the friction loss for one flow is known, the friction loss of any other flow can be quickly computed. OR ;'( @( (.)% =E F ;’& @& ;'( @( (.)% = (;’& ) E F @& The same kind of manipulation can be done holding three of the five variables constant, yields the following additional relationships, all of which are applicable to any system of units: Equation 5.11 The following equation is very helpful in evaluating the results of hydrant flow tests: ;'( #.%* @( = (@& ) E F ;’& Equation 5.12 *( *.)+ A( = (A& ) E F *& COMPANION NOTES FOR WEEK 6 LECTURE Example 13.1 An occupancy, considered Ordinary Hazard, Group 2 by NFPA 13 with a design area of 2,000 square feet (186 m2) will be used.
