FS 105 Fire Service Hydraulics • 3 Cr.
Studies the mechanical properties of water at rest and in motion. Students focus on applying the properties of water to fire suppression operations and fire stream development. Other topics include municipal water supply systems and rural water supply operations. Prerequisite: FS 110 and placement by assessment into MATH 099 or MATH 098 with a C- or better, or permission of instructor.
After completing this class, students should be able to:
- Apply the application of mathematics and physics to the movement of water in fire suppression activities.
- Comprehend the design principles of fire service pumping apparatus.
- Analyze community fire flow demand criteria.
- Demonstrate, through problem solving, a thorough understanding of the principles of forces that affect water at rest and in motion
