    i say ditto to that... unfortunately it's out of print and cost 400 dollars on amazon. find a fellow ff near you with it and borrow for a while. also you can check the local colleges that do ff studies, they are likely to have it in their library.

    Can't be any more true.

    You'll find if you do your own flow testing with the trucks your department has and the hose you use you'll come a lot closer to what your pump pressures need to be for a given hose stretch.

    Make sure you document your findings and print them, laminate them and tape them somewhere close to the pump panel so every member that is engineering any given day can quickly use it for reference.

It also has a chart for friction losses on different hoses and nozzle pressures, and the other side is all about foam applications. The print is a little small, but there is a great deal of information on it, and it still works fine after you get it wet. I think you can just call TFT and get one free.

    Akron and Elkhart both have the same things. TFT copied it from them.

    Read about Bernoulli Equation.

    Look at these links:

    Other than that...

    Google your question...

    started a topic nozzle psi, gpm ect

    nozzle psi, gpm ect

    can someone hook me up with a good article or book about nozzle psi and gpm and friction loss and all that jazz, thanx!
