In a special two-day session as part of NFPA’s Fire & Life Safety Conference in Orlando, Dana Haagansen, P.E., a member of the NFPA 13 technical committee, led attendees through the ins and outs of how to calculate and review sprinkler system hydraulics. Based on guidelines in NFPA 13, Standard for the Installation of Sprinkler Systems, this class gave participants the opportunity to learn to determine occupancy classification and sprinkler discharge calculations, and to perform hands-on branchline and whole system calculations.
