The newest edition to Delmar's successful Fire Rescue line, Hydraulics for Firefighting leads readers through the principles, theory, and practical application of fire service hydraulics. Written in a format that will help guide the new firefighter through even the most technical hydraulic principles and complex laws of physics, the first 9 chapters concentrate heavily on theory and formulas. The author takes care to explain theories in ways that are easily understood by anyone with knowledge of basic algebra. In addition, examples appear immediately after detailed technical explanations, presenting the requisite theory in terms of a practical application. The final 4 chapters offer opportunities for readers to apply their new knowledge of hydraulics to real-world tasks, such as: calculating engine pressure, getting the most out of the available water supply, and testing and inspecting water-based suppression systems.
