PIPENET Spray/Sprinkler module is the global leader and standard software for hydraulic analysis of fire protection systems in accordance with NFPA rules. We are pleased to invite you to webinar
PIPENET Spray/Sprinkler – Advanced Topics
Why are there three options for pump curves? What do degeneration factors mean? How can we estimate required pump sizes? How do I switch pumps on/off?
2. Virtual nozzles for deluge systems:
What is the advantage of using them? When must we avoid using virtual nozzles? How to model systems using elastomeric deluge valves? How can we switch on/off banks of nozzles?
3. Combining sub-systems:
Why are firewater ring mains and deluge systems modelled separately? Why is it important to combine sub-systems to create a global system? What preparatory work must I do for combining sub-networks? How can I use copy/paste to create networks quickly?
4. Loops and High Points:
What tools does PIPENET offer for eliminating elevation errors? When is it important to input high points in a single pipe?
5. Block and Break status in pipes:
What is the purpose of block and break? Why does block sometimes lead to failure to calculate? Why may I wish to use break? What is the accurate way to model a break?
6. Debottlenecking techniques:
Sorting. Colouration. Creating and using a path.
