Hydraulic calculations for Wet & Dry risers systems
A useful research report has been published by ODPM to provide information on the limitations of fire rising mains such as wet and dry risers complying with BS 5306 part 1: 2006. The report looks at a number of different pumps and nozzle and hydraulic calculates the pressure loss through the pipe.
The Canute - FHC hydraulic calculation software is able to make the same types of pressure loss calculations as presented in this report which may help installers and designs verify designs.
