Brad provided an informative look into the design process
and concepts used in a recent project to provide fire
protection for the new National Guard aircraft hanger at
Memphis International Airport. The requirements were to meet the architect’s
criteria as well as meeting the military design and foam application
requirements. The objective was to provide foam coverage under the profile
of the aircraft as well as total hanger floor area coverage within specified
times and under specific coverage depths. The challenge was to meet both
group requirements and provide full coverage. Brad discussed the design
process and approach the design team took. He provided the alternative
approaches that were considered and provided a summary of the final system
design. Acceptance test videos were shown which provided a great view of
the operation of a High Expansion Foam system. Ultimately the system was
proven to meet the design criteria and tests were approved by the project
