Standpipe Systems for Fire Protection
author    Kenneth E. Isman
publisher  Springer 
ISBN 978-3-319-47749-7


There have been very few books written about standpipe systems in the 150-year history of water-based fire protection system design. In 1976, Dr. John Bryan published the first edition of his book, Automatic Sprinkler and Standpipe Systems. This book was an important step forward because it was the first book to dedicate significant space to the subject. But half of the book was dedicated to fire sprinkler systems, so there was not enough space in the book to get into some of the more complicated issues involved in standpipe system design. Over the years, Dr. Bryan’s book was updated with more information, but it still did not have the space to tackle the real complex issues. At the same time, standpipe systems were evolving and more codes and standards organizations were getting involved in writing their own requirements, which are sometimes contradictory. The time has come for a book dedicated to standpipe systems and nothing else so that all of the complicated issues can be discussed.
This book pulls together all of the requirements for standpipe systems that can be found in the International Building Code, the International Fire Code, NFPA 14NFPA 20, and NFPA 25 and attempts to make sense of them. In the situations where the requirements from one document contradict the rules of another, the hierarchy will be presented so that the reader will be able to determine which requirement is the one that needs to be followed.
The life cycle of standpipe systems will be covered from beginning to end. The book opens with basic information on what standpipe systems are and a short history  of standpipe systems. It continues with design information and special considerations for high-rise buildings and pressure control concerns. The book will wrap up with a discussion of how to conduct the acceptance tests for a new standpipe system and how to care for an existing standpipe system with periodic inspection, testing, and maintenance
