Telgian Engineering & Consulting President Leonard Ramo, along with UL Staff Engineer Christopher Gates, will speak at the at 2nd Annual SFPE/AIA WHV Joint Technical Conference on October 3, 2019 at the Westchester Marriott, Tarrytown, NY. Ramo and Gates will jointly present a workshop entitled “Prescriptive vs. Performance-Based Protection with Sprinklers – What is the Real Value? Lessons from Full-Scale Fire Testing.”
The presentation will explore lessons learned through full-scale fire testing directly related to solving real work problems such as solid shelves, blocked flues, and aisle storage. “We will review large-scale fire testing programs and methods that have been conducted in general accordance with NFPA 13, Chapter 24, Alternative Sprinkler System Designs,” explains Ramo, “as well as review the development of sound test programs, testing options, commodity classification, sprinkler technologies, and interesting results.” This presentation will encourage ideas for solving situations where prescriptive answers are not always the best option.
