Title: High Pressure Fire Loop Analysis

Abstract

The scope will be limited to analyzing the effect of the EFC within the system and how one improperly installed coupling affects the rest of the HPFL system. The discussion will include normal operations, impaired flow, and service interruptions. Normal operations are defined as two-way flow to buildings. Impaired operations are defined as a building that only has one-way flow being provided to the building. Service interruptions will be when a building does not have water available to it. The project will look at the following aspects of the reliability of the HPFL system: mean time to failure (MTTF) of EFCs, mean time between failures (MTBF), series system models, and parallel system models. These calculations will then be used to discuss the reliability of the system when one of the couplings fails. Compare the reliability of two-way feeds versus one-way feeds.
