Sprinkler Hydraulic Calculations (June 2023)
Starts: June 28, 2023, 8:00 AM (Central)
Ends: June 30, 2023, 5:00 PM (Central)
In this three-day, in-person workshop, students will understand and apply principles of hydraulics including the different types of pressure, calculating changes in pressure (elevation and friction loss) and node analysis. Students will apply factors for equivalent length adjustments based on pipe type, size, and system arrangement. Using the principles of hydraulics, students will select a remote area, perform hand calculations for tree systems, and identify and understand the different sections of the detailed hydraulic worksheet, and where to place the appropriate system information. Examples of calculations for sprinkler systems, water supply analysis, and simple loops are provided with a hands-on approach. Students will apply their knowledge to perform hand calculations. Then, students will utilize computer-based calculation software to demonstrate the impact of choices on system characteristics to determine effects on system demand and performance and validate the results.
