Abstract: Reliability study on a sprinkler system based on the new proposal for old high-rise buildings in Hong Kong was carried out. Fault tree analysis was used to analyze the reliability of the sprinkler system. The mean fractional dead time representing the failure probability of the sprinkler system on demand was calculated. It is found that the design is not so promising because of using smaller tanks due to space constraints. Two alternative system designs are recommended. The study was repeated and those designs are found to be more reliable.
