COURSE GOALS: To enable the student:
1. to gain the knowledge required to apply the principles of
hydraulics while pumping through various discharge devices
and various hose configurations.
2. to develop an understanding of how to utilize various
kinds of water supplies.
3. to recognize the various types and sizes of hose streams
and their uses.
1. The student will solve problems using applied mathematics in
2. Analyze various pumping situations and while considering
velocity and rate of flow, friction loss, and nozzle
3. Identify strengths and weaknesses in various water supplies
and systems, based on tests of the system and ISO grading
4. Compare fire streams and their ranges and be able to
identify the best uses for each.
Topics and Scope
1. Applied Mathematics
a. Multiplication and division
b. Square root
c. Elementary algebra
2. Principles of Hydraulics
a. Velocity, rate of flow, and friction loss
b. Nozzle and engine pressures
c. Other hydraulics formulas
3. Water Sources
a. Static and organic
b. ISO specifications
4. Fire Streams
a. Fog and spray
b. Straight streams
a. Various hose layouts
b. Sprinklers and standpipes
The student will:
1. Prepare, with a group, a written and oral analysis of an
engine pressure requirement when pumping above or below the
eye of the pump.
2. Prepare, describe, and identify the design and capabilities of
a new purchase or current fire apparatus pumper.
3. Describe in writing current hydraulic technology from research
of trade technical magazines and analyze the effects on the
Methods of Evaluation/Basis of Grade.
