Peak Simultaneous Demand
Simultaneous Demand Factor
The discharge unit value takes into account the number of fittings discharging simultaneously compared with the total number of fittings installed.
known as the usage ratioT,n = total number of fittings installed t = time in seconds fittings are discharging T = time in seconds between usage
Total number of fittings installed (n) = 30 It has been assumed that each fitting will take 10sec to discharge their contents, and will be used at 900sec intervals
.= 0.11900.= 5.10 + square root of 5.874.= 5.10 + 2.42.= 7.52Simultaneous Demand Factor = 7.52%
