Fire hoses are a firefighter’s main line of defense and offense during an emergency. The durability and strength of the materials are the key parameters that guaranty the hose material withstand all conditions during its lifecycle. This project studied the tensile strength of six double jacket fire attack hose materials by performing tensile tests at three different elevated temperatures using a custom designed ceramic cup furnace.
