JG: Please see question #8 of week 16 attached and the reference from page 16-102 of the 20th edition of the Fire Protection Handbook, listing dormitories under the NFPA 13D standard. What are your thoughts?
JG: Please see my question and solution attached. The question references space which infers the quantity of agent. It does not ask for concentration. Based on concentration the solution is correct. But by assuming an ambient temp of 70 degree F, the ranking order would be differ from the solution. Which is related to space/quantity of agent, what the question asks. Am I missing something?
What are your thoughts?
TH: I just wanted to check with you about this question. Isn't the quantity of agent also dependent on the specific volume of the agent? That lead me to put the answers I had after reviewing the Table A.5.5.1 and Table A.5.5.2 volume requirements. I checked for varying temps (70F and 10F) and still ended up with the same order I input in the screenshot below.
