This three-day, in-person workshop provides a deep dive into advanced hydraulic principles for standpipe systems, fire pump assemblies, and water storage tanks. Students will receive classroom instruction, work through examples, and complete practice exercises.

Learning Objectives:

Upon completion of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  1. Determine minimum design requirements for standpipe systems 2. Identify vertical standpipe system zone requirements 3. Identify and apply requirements for pressure-regulating devices 4. Apply principles of fire pumps necessary for hydraulic design including:
  2. Apply the Hazen-Williams formula by changing variables (flow, roughness, and pipe size) to improve system performance.
  3. Determine the minimum water supply needed to support sprinkler system demand.
  4. Apply hydraulic principles to balance flows and pressure at junction points.
    • Suction, discharge, and net pressure
    • Laws of affinity
    • Fire pump selection
  5. Apply Hydraulic principles of water storage tank design including:
    • Determine minimum capacity based on system demand
    • Determine minimum usable capacity of the tank
    • Determine appropriate refill rates for break tanks
    • Determine maximum length of pipe supplying a fire pump

Credits & Approvals
