Abstract

This project evaluated an innovative fire suppression sprinkler head design. The goal was to determine the capabilities of the sprinkler head and develop possible recommendations to improve it. The sprinkler head was tested by both physical and theoretical means, yielding quantitative and qualitative results. The overall outcome of the evaluation was that the theoretical improvement to traditional designs was justified when physically tested, but more research must be conducted to perfect the design and make it marketable.
