Description

For courses in fire protection hydraulics, water supply, and fire technology; and for working fire department professionals studying to become drivers, operators, or engineers.

 

Now in full color throughout, this extensively updated text gives students a complete foundation in fire department hydraulics, explaining how and why water is discharged from nozzles at the correct pressures to effectively fight fires. One step at a time, it clearly explains key concepts including the weight of water, friction loss within hoselines, characteristics of municipal water supplies, delivery of water to handlines and master streams, and much more. This edition’s many improvements include: new full color diagrams, tables and pictures; new safety alerts based on NFFF’s initiatives; coverage of new tank shapes, containers, hoses, testing, and deck gun calculations; more effective organization; and extensive new web-based study resources.
