Fire Sprinkler Design: An Illustrated Guide for AHJ's [BOOK]

Aucune rencontre n'arrive par hasard pdf aziatomik rencontre

Rated 4.1 stars based on 57 reviews

J’avais complètement oublier Ghostscrip. Tombé sur l’article par hasard, j’ai bidouillé un petit .bat pour mes utilisateurs et le gain de compression est assez impressionnant. Beaucoup plus efficace que les sites de compression ! Il est vrai que ce format de document portable (ou PDF) est très pratique que ce soit pour une utilisation professionnelle ou non. Et là, le terminal me renvoie un message d’erreur jamais vu jusque là :  » **** ERROR: Unable to process JBIG2Decode data. C’est comme si il te manquait une libraire permettant de décoder certaines images. Le programme fonctionne bien, rencontres iodees le paramètre /printer est assez efficace et satisfaisante. Je suis en déplacement (avec mon PC professionnel !) aujourd’hui et demain, et ne peux donner de détails. Lorsque j’exécute la commande il me demande d’ouvrir le fichier pdf de mon choix et de sélectionner le type de compression (screen, ebook, printer ou prepress) ce que je fais, mais rien de se passe. RES est en dot ou pixels par pouce. Comment vas-tu depuis le temps ? Serait-il possible de marquer un rdv pour dimanche en fin d’aprem? Pour t’expliquer un peu ce que tu fais, la commande « CD » permet juste de se d »placer dans un répertoire que l’on lui donne en paramètre. En tout cas, content d’avoir pu t’aider à compresser tes fichiers et si jamais tu trouves une astuces ou deux à l’utilisation de Ghostscript, n’hésites pas à repasser par ici pour les partager avec nous ! Je n’ai jamais rencontré cette erreur, as-tu essayé d’utiliser GhostScript avec l’interface graphique ?

Je suis convaincu que débuter par le terminal (si l’on veut vraiment faire quelque chose et pas seulement jouer…) est vraiment très difficile, comme Sandy peut le constater. J’ai un « FichierDeSortie.pdf » de 11 mo au lieux de 56 mo de très bonne qualité. J’ai bien suivi la procédure dans l’article. J’essaierai de refaire des tests si j’ai le temps, il se peut également qu’une nouvelle version de la librairie embarque un bug non résolu, as-tu essayé d’aller voir si personne n’en parle sur le site officiel de Ghostscript ? Concernant la compression des PDf, choisissez les paramètres /printer OU /prepress, le taux de compression est plus faible afin de conserver la qualité des documents. Je suis d’accord avec toi sur la partie « sécurité » et « installateur », en effet, il y a du boulot pour sortir un truc propre. Merci pour tes encouragements Pierre, ça fait toujours plaisir !! Je vais donc partager avec vous une librairie que j’utilise depuis un moment maintenant, et personnellement, je n’ai pas encore trouvé aussi efficace que ça !! En tout cas, pour le moment, je ne vois que cette explication ! En tout cas merci de prendre le temps de m’expliquer. J’en ai préparé un choix chez moi, si le ou les flltres par défaut de conviennent pas. J’ai déjà rencontré ce problème et l’ai résolu grâce aux filtres Quartz Apple,ou en changeant les réglages Ghoscript. Enfin, GhostScript et Foomatic-RIP seront déjà installés si vous voulez utiliser Scribus (http://bit.ly/hvlBRN même si l’article est à compléter et à mettre à jour…). Merci pour ton feedback, je pense que cela pourra être utile à pas mal de personnes !

Merci pour ton retour. Finalement j’ai trouvé une autre solution avec PDF Shrink qui fonctionne très bien et sans perte de qualité (sous MAC). Bon, à part ça, je vous l’accorde, le titre de ce billet est un peu racoleur mais franchement cette bibliothèque est très efficace et je pense qu’elle mérite d’être un peu mieux connue et elle vous rendra sûrement de nombreux services. Qu’est-ce que cela a donné avec les autres paramètres de compression ? Un peu de feedack si cela peu aider. Serait-il possible de rajouter des captures d’écran dans votre explication? Avez-vous essayé de la mettre en oeuvre ? J’ai pas testé mais ce sont des service PDF Web, bureautique et pré-presse.. En espérant vous croiser dans la semaine !! Le projet s’appelle « GhostView » pour GNU/Linux, « MacGSView » pour Mac OS et « GSView » pour Microsoft Windows. Faudrait acheter un distiller, ce que j’aimerais éviter, d’autant que mon besoin est assez basique et ponctuel. Cela cela dépasse sans doute mes compétences, car pour faire quelque chose qui marche à coup sûr, il faut faire le travail d’un véritable « installeur ».. Je n’ai pas pu tester sur les dernières versions de l’ OS Apple mais sur 10.6.6 et antérieur. Un grand MERCI !!! pour cette solution qui nous rappelle que les bonnes vieilles solutions sont parfois les meilleures.

Après avoir fait quelques recherches sur le sujet, il existe apparemment une version de la librairie possédant une interface graphique permettant d’utiliser la librairie. Sinon je serais là après le diner aux alentours des 21h.. Point positif, celle-ci est multi-plateformes donc que vous soyez sous Microsoft Windows, Mac OS ou GNU/Linux vous pourrez compresser vos fichiers PDF sans problème !! Merci pour le partage, ce service a l’air plutôt bien réalisé ! J’ai créé un nouveau filtre Quartz sans effet (en dupliquant le filtre d’origine qui ne peut être modifié). On dispose du code source, donc il est facile de l’adapter. Euuh … je ne comprends pas vraiment ton message d’erreur, tu es sur une machine sous Windows ? Bon courage pour tes recherches de jobs ! J’utilise en effet LaTeX pour faire des documents industriels compliqués et il est souvent nécessaire de réduire la taille des fichiers .pdf. Le message s’affiche avec les majuscules..

SI je comprends bien, cela permet une meilleure gestion des couleurs c’est ça ? Par exemple, si je veux me déplacer dans le dossier « toto » qui de trouve sur mon bureau, j’écris dans le terminal « cd » qui signifie « change directory » , puis je fais glisser l’icône de « toto » dans la fenêtre du terminal, et on peut y lire « cd /Users/yves/Desktop/toto/  » Si j’appuie sur « enter » pour valider ma commande, je me trouve dans le dossier « toto »…. J’ai utilisé le paramètre /screen pour tester la plus forte compression et j’ai obtenu une fichier de…..

Fire Inspector Qualifications - A Path for Professional Development

Photo credit: Los Angeles Fire Department
It has been almost thirteen years since I walked into the fire academy to get the education I needed for a career. My intention was to become a “firefighter” however, it was in the academy, that I learned of the various pathways that title and role could follow. Of the nearly 400 hours of training that is required to become a certified firefighter in the state of Florida, about four of those hours are dedicated to fire prevention. It was with this brief introduction that I knew the path my career would follow.


A quick search on professional development in the fire service will return a plethora of information on career guidance and advancement. The majority of this information will be based on the operations and suppression side of the industry.  There is a disproportionately small amount of information on career development for the fire prevention, inspections, and plan review divisions of this field.


With the many different certification bodies, educational programs, and course options, it can be difficult to create a clear path for success in the field.  However, with some simple guidance and a bit of persistence success can be had. The starting point is within yourself. You must determine the goals and objectives that you have for your career. Do you want to work for a municipal fire department or an industrial type of department? Do you want to work in public service, or the private sector? Are you excited about a career in your “hometown” department, or are you looking forward to the travel and “adventure” that overseas contract work can provide? What part of fire prevention do you want to focus on - inspections, plan review, public education, or investigations? Where are you now and where do you want to be, and what is the ultimate goal of your career? Do you desire to move up the career ladder - inspector, supervisor, chief? The answers to these questions will help to shed light on your career pathway.


After you have an idea of what direction you want your fire inspection and plan review career to follow, you will need to obtain the necessary certifications.  Typically, you will find that these requirements follow these four primary certification paths. These are State specific requirements, IFSAC/ProBoard, International Code Council (ICC), and National Fire Protection Association (NFPA).

Always start with your state’s requirements. Some states defer the certification process to these other listed certifying bodies, and others have their own programs for certification.  Beyond the state requirements, the chart below, shows the certification levels that are available, in the order they should be obtained within.



For certifications related to advancement, there are many options. There is currently no set standard for obtaining the top rank within fire prevention (such as Fire Marshal or Chief of Prevention). The state of Florida and the state of California are two states that provide a formal certification for these positions. Their programs can serve as a model for other states, departments, and organizations to follow.


Model Programs

Florida

California

The chart below is based on the Department of Defense (DoD) requirements for fire service positions. This can serve as a general guide to professional development and advancement. In the least, this provides a framework to build your career on, it can be modified to meet your particular state or departments requirements.





Keep in mind that the career path presented here is showing only the path of fire inspector and plans examiner, to Chief Officer.  There are additional certification requirements for those who desire to take the fire prevention path of public educator, fire investigator, or community risk reduction specialist. Though there is overlap in the certification process, each of these have their own path to the top positions in this field.

Benefits of Fire Door Commissioning

This guest post is provided by our #FireDoorSafetyWeek partner, Aegis Fire Barrier Consultants, and is written by, Justin B. Biller, P.E., CHFM, CLSS-HC, CFPS | AEGIS Technical Director.



Doors are a major concern for building owners and facility managers. Ongoing maintenance of doors and architectural hardware represents a significant cost margin to building owners. Nowhere, is this more true than for healthcare facility and engineering managers where building footprints are vast - often in excess of 1 million square feet or more. Maintaining all doors in large facilities is always a challenge, but of even higher concern for healthcare engineers is fire and smoke barrier management, wherein door maintenance is a critical component. This point is not lost on a highly accomplished architect, Amanda Adams AIA, who has spent much of her career in significant restoration projects – she has noted first- hand how important fire and smoke door assemblies become in sustaining code compliance, providing a safe and healthy environment for building occupants, and in achieving her overall architectural vision for a space. Ms. Adams highlighted this point to us at AEGIS, wherein she states,


“the foremost requirement of architecture is shelter. This ranks above aesthetics and creative efforts. All building occupants - users, visitors, tenants, residents - expect a building to provide shelter from the elements. At times, emergency situations arise that cause a building to offer shelter or protection from internal threats (often this is a fire threat)....whether that be protect in place or provide a safe exiting scenario. Passive life safety systems hold top priority in life safety; active systems increase safety and provide additional time. Properly functioning fire doors are a critical basic component to the passive system. A door must fit properly in its frame. Closing hardware must work properly. Positive latching hardware completes the barrier.”

The added strain on fiscal responsibilities for healthcare facilities to “do more with less” heightens the need to challenge installers to do the work right the first time – it is often noted on annual inspections of fire and smoke door assemblies that the ongoing challenges to maintenance stem from improper installation (i.e., improperly plumbed door frame and jamb, incorrect or insufficient hardware, incorrect door or glazing type, etc.).
According to the Door Security and Safety Foundation, although doors only represent 2% of a typical construction budget, on average more than 30% of punch-list items are door-related. It is, therefore, the opinion of many within the industry that it is in the best interest of building owners to verify fire and smoke doors are installed properly from the outset – a determination that committee members of NFPA 80, Standard for Fire Doors and Other Opening Protectives also found imperative. In its most current published editions (2016 and 2019), NFPA 80 prescribes in section 5.2.1 that “upon completion of the installation” these assemblies are to be inspected and tested.
Here at AEGIS we believe as well that a comprehensive survey of door installation during construction benefits the building designer and can dramatically decrease ongoing maintenance costs associated with fire and smoke door assemblies. We are here to help you implement this on your next project and can work with your design team through specification and installation through final punch-out.
What is Fire System Commissioning (FCx)
NFPA 3, Recommended Practice for Commissioning of Fire Protection and Life Safety Systems delineates that the commissioning and integrated testing process would include both, active and passive components of fire protection systems. Commissioning is a procedure of verifying a quality process from design inception through development and construction and extends through the life of the building by ongoing maintenance and operations. Passive fire protection systems, including fire and smoke rated door assemblies, serve as a primary component for most building life safety systems with varying degrees of complexity (based on factors such as occupancy and building geometry). Fire and smoke rated doors are often integrated with fire and life safety systems such as fire alarm, sprinkler, smoke control, and emergency electrical systems, thus it becomes imperative for the fire commissioning team (FCxT) to include qualified fire door commissioning agents (Cx) to be employed. Along with NFPA 3, NFPA also developed NFPA 4, Standard for the Integrated Fire Protection and Life Safety System Testing to work in concert with the recommended practices of commissioning, outlined in NFPA 3, to accomplish this task.
AEGIS with its partnerships with engineers and architects, has the practical experience and expertise to support your commissioning team with passive fire protection system components.
