flow rate; mapping; sprinkler systems
Effect of flow rates, supply pipe size, direction of
supply, deflector to ceiling clearance, orientation of
sprinkler arms, angles of the sprinkler head, and
sprinkler guards on the distribution of water from
upright and pendant sprinkler heads have been studies.
Three collection arrays were used to measure densities
from one or two sprinklers. To evaluate the effects of
the above variables data from tests were used in
conjunction with a Synagraphic Mapping System (SYMAP)
computer program to produce isodensity mappings of
