Chapter 6- Review Questions 1. Define the terms fire and combustion and explain the difference between them. What are three reasons to install special water-based fire protection systems? Fire is sustained combustion resulting in a flame; combustion is the result of the fire tetrahedron coming together. Special water-based systems should be installed when automatic fire sprinklers are not appropriate, there is a need for different suppression, or the method of application requires special equipment. 2. Are there specific building code requirements to install special water-based fire protection systems? If so, what are they? If not, what is the requirement? No code language specifies what type of fire suppression system to install for hazards, but is written to allow proper authorities to determine what appropriate system to install. 3. What NFPA standard discusses water mist systems? NFPA 15 4. Is there any difference between foam, foam solution, and foam concentrate? If so, what are the differences?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
