Without a good understanding of the water supply, suppression activities could be limited and lives endangered. The author discusses various planning strategies, departmental water supply needs, shuttle operations, and water sources. In addition, he gives you ideas on writing specifications for water supply apparatus, specific SOPs, and how the water supply officer can coordinate many tasks into an efficient operation.

Fire service pump operators must have an understanding of the many laws of science that govern the study of hydraulics and water supply in order to be able to handle the complex hydraulic problems that may arise in real world scenarios. Based on the Fire and Emergency Services in Higher Education (FESHE) model curriculum for Fire Protection Hydraulics & Water Supply, the third edition of Fire Protection Hydraulics and Water Supply effectively teaches hydraulics by systematically addressing the underlying science in a way that makes challenging subject matter easier to understand and retain. Readers will be introduced to the basic properties of water and laws of hydraulics and friction loss before learning to apply formulas to calculate flow, friction loss, nozzle reaction, and more. Additionally, readers will progress to learn about: Complex principles of pump operation, including conditions such as end thrust and radial hydraulic balance, the application of Newton's first law of motion as it applies to a kinetic energy pump, and the concept of Enthalpy. Various laws of physics, including Pascal's Principle, Bernoulli's Principle, and Newton's third law of motion as it applies to the concept of nozzle reaction. New and improved formulas for calculating gallons per minute, nozzle reaction, and more. Additionally, each chapter now includes: Fireground Fact boxes that provide real world context or additional information on important topics. Case studies that emphasize a law or principle presented in the text. Updated key terms, formulas, and end-of-chapter resources. ? Revision Notes Revised table 5-1 Table 5-1 has been revised to include C Factors for all common smooth bore tip sizes. The C Factors are necessary for the version of Freeman's Formula used in the book for calculating flow from a smooth bore nozzle. The version of Freeman's formula used in Fire Protection Hydraulics and Water Supply, Revised 3rd Ed is the same one used in Section 15, Chapter 3, of the 20th edition of the Fire Protection Handbook, which is the current Fire Protection Handbook. No other current book on fire service hydraulics uses this version of Freeman's Formula. All other hydraulic books used a dumbed down version of Freeman's Formula that doesn't use C Factors. The C Factors in table 5-1 are used throughout the remainder of this book whenever the flow from a smooth bore nozzle is needed to solve a problem. Revised table 6-1 Table 6-1 contains Conversion Factors necessary when finding friction loss in various size hose. The revised Table 6-1 in Fire Protection Hydraulics and Water Supply, Revised 3rd Ed has added a third column with conversion factors to be used when calculating friction loss using the abbreviated formula, as explained in Chapter 6. The Conversion Factors from table 6-1 are used throughout the remainder of this book whenever FL 100 must be calculated.

For the practical user like engineers, inspectors, experts, approval authorities and senior executives of fire departments, this reference book describes requirements to the fire fighting water supply to hydrants which contribute substantially to the improvement of functional security. Structural Engineering and security related requirements to hydrant systems for fire fighting inside a building are presented and contrasted with each other according to international standards and legal requirements. The findings for the technical use are derived from the interdisciplinary research results in cooperation with universities, public authorities, leading fire departments, fire department training centers, professional associations as well as the industry and presented intelligibly. The first part of the research report addresses directly the user. In this section, the different procedures and their assessment methods with summarized measurement results are specified and evaluated. The second part comprises the scientific basic information of the single specialist fields. The respective measurement results and further derivations are illustrated in detail. Through the cooperation of the affected specialist fields, an investigation has been carried out on which specific requirements to fire fighting water supply to hydrants in high-rises and large properties exist in order to provide a yet more secure fire fighting water supply for personal and property protection. It has been identified which limit values for pressure and flow rates on the nozzle are acceptable under security related aspects considering the applied pressure regulation method and which technical requirements have to be taken into account. This reference book will be available as hardcover, PDF, iBook and App in German, English, Spanish and French.
