Elite Software FIRE v6.0.157 info: Elite's FIRE Program quickly performs all necessary hydraulic calculations as required by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA 13 1996 Edition). FIRE also estimates sprinkler head requirements, calculates optimal pipe sizes, and automatically performs a peaking analysis. FIRE can handle all types of sprinkler systems (trees, grids, and hybrids) with up to 1,000 or more sprinklers and pipes. Meters and standpipes can also be analyzed.
FIRE calculates the gpm water flow and velocity through all pipe sections, the gpm flow and residual pressure at each sprinkler head, the pressure losses incurred in each pipe section due to both friction and elevation changes, the maximum system demand pressure, and the total water gpm demanded by the system. The report format is designed to aid both the designer and the plan reviewer.
