Abstract

This project re-designed, constructed, and validated an apparatus that can provide repeatable and reliable results for the time to failure of a fire attack hose that is charged with water and then subjected to a conductive heat load. Each component of the apparatus was re-designed and tested to meet the performance criteria specified. The apparatus was validated through performance testing and provided clear evidence that it can be used to accurately compare the properties of fire attack hoses.
