Manuell brandsläckning med vatten

Särdqvist, Stefan LU (1999) In LUTVDG/TVBB--3106--SE 3106.
Abstract
To investigate how the relation between the control time and the total amount of water varies with the water application rate at manual fire fighting operations, six different experimental fire test series were studied. In spite of being quite different, the experiments prove to give similar results. Plotting the total volume of water required against the application rate, gives a diagram in the shape of a fish hook. The lowest total volume gives an optimum application rate of about 0.01 l/m²s. The fire brigade equipment is over-sized for the studied scenarios. To investigate the limitations of the equipment, there is a need for fire tests in a larger scale.
