Using the hydraulic calculation method for a 1 side

branched tree system was previously explained .

-We used to add the pressure losses in sprinklers”1-2-3-4”

-We added them to the losses in the pipes”1-2,2-3,3-4,4-5”

-We found the New “K Factor at node “6” that declared the

2

nd

branch as a 1 big sprinkler.

-we calculated the flow rate in the 2

nd

branch using the

Formula : Q=Ktot .

6

P

-in 1 side branched system we used to start with the furthest

sprinkler “1” by calculating the flow rate which is equal to the

density x area of coverage .

-and then we calculated the pressure on the mentioned

sprinkler using:

-Then we have calculated the pressure loss in the pipe using

Hazen-williamequation at the convenient C value , usually

120.

-The pressure losses which must be covered by the

pump are the losses that occur on the longest run

of the whole system and the flow rate covered is the

sum of flow rate of all sprinklers .

The Problem may arise when the system is double

branched and the 2 branches do not have the same

number of sprinklers.

-At the furthest run the 2 branches must together be balanced

-Considering this system being: ordinary hazard 1 with

Area of operation equal to 1500 ft2.

-Density of Hydraulic most demand sprinkler is 0.15gpm/ft2

-Area of coverage of sprinkler = 130 ft2.

-Sprinkler K factor = 5.6.

-The final pressure at nipple 5 =26 psi and the flow rate

Going to branch “4-3-2-1” is equal to 85.2 gpm

-Now we have to identify how much flow rate shall go

to branch “6-7”.

-We start hydraulic calculation with “6-7”

As if this branch is the longest branch.

-We start with sprinkler 7 as if it is the hydraulic most

-According to Branch “6-7” Pressure at nipple “5”

Is equal to =15.3 psi and flow rate to “6-7” = 40.2gpm

-We find now the new K factor for the whole branch “6-7”

Is not the real pressure at nipple 5 , the real pressure is

already calculated = 26 psi from branch “1-2-3-4-5”

equal to 26 psi which belong to the real pressure

At nipple 5 calculated from the longest branch

“1-2-3-4-5”

-Q6-7 = 10.2. = 52 Gpm

-Total Q at pipe 8-5 = 52 +85.2=137Gpm.

-Total pressure at 5 =26 psi.

We continue backward by calculating the flow rate at

every branch , because of the smiliratiy in branch”12-11-10-9-8”

And branch “8,13,14,15,16” , the balance is already achieved

A new Problem may arise when the most remote

Sprinkler is not at the last branch of the tree system

-How then we can calculate the demanded flow rate and

The pressure ?

-As we see above sprinkler “1” will cost the pump

the maximum pressure

-we can use the hydraulic calulation to calculate the

Pressure at nipple”5” and the flow rate sent to branch:

‘1-2-3-4-5” But the pressure at node 6 is unknown ,hence

The flow rate at node 6 is unknowas well ????

-The solution for this problem is to create 2 equations with

2 unknowns
