Based on some feedback and good ideas I've been experimenting with graphing fire pump & flow test curves with usable data outputs. Below is the first iteration for drawing a fire pump curve alongside a water supply curve.
Determining ideal fire pump configurations for sprinkler and standpipe systems can be
an important part of optimizing fire suppression design
Here's the help I could really use from you - what else would be included in your ideal pump curve?
Would you prefer this be on a logarithmic x-axis?
Want 175 & 300 psi limit lines shown?
Would you want to see at what height in a building the 175 psi threshold would occur - on this graph?
System demand and hose?
I'm open to any and all ideas - in the end I think it'd be great if this tool was the quickest & best method for summarizing and analyzing fire pump output. Share your ideas in the comments here, thanks in advance!
