The first part of the research report addresses directly the user. In this section, the different procedures and their assessment methods with summarized measurement results are specified and evaluated. The second part comprises the scientific basic information of the single specialist fields. The respective measurement results and further derivations are illustrated in detail. Through the cooperation of the affected specialist fields, an investigation has been carried out on which specific requirements to fire fighting water supply to hydrants in high-rises and large properties exist in order to provide a yet more secure fire fighting water supply for personal and property protection. It has been identified which limit values for pressure and flow rates on the nozzle are acceptable under security related aspects considering the applied pressure regulation method and which technical requirements have to be taken into account.

Written from the perspective of industrial users, this is the only book that describes how to install an effective firewater pumping system in a pragmatic and budget-conscious way rather than with purely the regulatory framework in mind. Based on the wide-ranging industrial experience of the author, this book is also the only one that deals with the particular risks and requirements of off-shore facilities. This book takes the reader beyond the prescriptive requirements of the fire code (NFPA, UL) and considers how to make the best choice of design for the budget available as well as how to ensure the other components of the pumping system and supporting services are optimized. The only alternative to guides written by regulatory enforcement bodies, this book is uniquely practical and objective – demonstrating how and why the standards need to be met Covers a wide range of industries, including those with exceptional requirements such as off-shore petroleum facilities and chemical plants Written by someone who has been responsible for the safety of large numbers of workers and billions of dollars worth of equipment, for those in similarly responsible positions
