AbstractFor the planning of firefighting operations it is necessary to know what flow of water at what pressure can be obtained with given equipment under given conditions. Tables already exist that supply this information, but in theire calculation the effect of percolation or leakage has been neglected. It recently became apparent that modern developements in the field of computing devices make it practicable to calculate flows and pressure for unlined hose, which is widely used in Canada for forest fire protection, while taking into account the loss of water by leakage. When this was pointed out, interest was shown and arrangements were accordingly made to develop such information.
