In the event of a fire, a sloped ceiling may alter sprinkler performance from expected results for a conventional horizontal ceiling configuration. This webinar will address the storage protection under sloped ceilings. A detailed computational study using the CFD code FireFOAM has been performed to understand ceiling configuration effects (construction details, etc.) and sprinkler configuration effects (stand-off distance, etc.) on suppression performance to support the development of a large-scale fire test plan to inform NFPA 13 for sloped ceiling storage protection.
Who will benefit: Provides technical data to help manufacturers, builders, codes and standards writers.
