Re: -- SPAM -- The ap, Rp Rap

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

I just did a fire sprinkler calc, and used ap = 2.5 and Rp = 6.0.  That is from ASCE Table 13.6-1 for DISTRIBUTION SYSTEMS, second item, "Piping in accordance with ASME B31 with joints made by threading...  "  This was from the design engineer of the sprinkler system...

Hope all is well.

Hey, Better than all the other nonsense that people stir up on this forum...

Break in your stride.  Does it hurt?

My only question is, in choosing ap and Rp for nonstructural water pipe,
hanging on the side of a bridge, what would be used for these to determine
Fp.  For appendages and ornamentation, ap =2.5, and Rp =2.5,  However, this
results in values greater than 1.0.  Does not seem necessary to use these.

What have others used?
