Presenters: Prateep Chatterjee, Assistant Vice President, Senior Lead Research Scientist, FM Global, Justin Geiman, Senior Engineer, Fire and Risk , Andre Marshall, Associate Professor, University of Maryland

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.
