The BirdDog Fire Pump Graphing Module was developed using the Hydraulics for Fire Protection formulas found in the NFPA Fire Protection Handbook. This program also combines various calculations to make it easier to enter data and have it calculate correct information such as GPM from pitot reading and nozzle coefficient as well as adjustment for fire pump speed. The results of calculations have been verified against the chart for theoretical flow through circular orifices in GPM found in the Fire Protection Handbook. Each nozzle coefficient was also verified against the table.
