Abstract

Purpose. Development and justification of proposals for improving the methodology for hydraulic calculation of automatic sprinkler fire extinguishing installations.

Methods. Modeling, designing, hydraulic calculations, multi-factor optimization.

Findings. A modernized method for calculating the discharge rate from sprinklers is proposed.

Application field of research. The obtained results can be used in the development of design standards for automatic sprinkler fire extinguishing installations, certain provisions can be used in the design of automatic sprinkler fire extinguishing installations within the framework of current standards.
