    Default

    coolfire,
    Are you referring to the demand for manual suppression that is required by the model building codes (mostly IBC/IFC at this point) for FD operations or are you asking how to determine the sprinkler system and hose stream demand? They are arrived at differently and while there is some connection between the two, they are essentially different requirements. Or maybe you are asking about some type of non-mandatory water flow estimate aside from the code requirements for sprinklers and manual suppression?
