The app uses FL=C*GPM²*L.
*All hose lengths are in 100' segments no 50' lengths*
I need your suggestions to make the app better! Please comment!
Developed for you by SpotFire to make life a bit easier for wildland firefighters.
To use this app, you need Fahrenheit and Feet for your units. Input your Air Temp, Wet Bulb Temp, and Elevation and mash the button, your RH Value as a percentage will appear on the screen. Simple as that.
Thank you for your feedback.
This app has NO ads, NO permissions and requires NO network connection once installed.
The RH CALC is also available in the SpotFire IRPG and SpotFire IRPG-FULL

The map screen displays the before mentioned fire weather alerts and the latest bounds for named wild fires. You must zoom in to view the boundary of a wildfire. The map also displays satellite detected fires across North America. The bounds of any smoke is painted as well when it is available (that data is sporadically released from government sources).
You also have the ability to change the type of base map from Normal Google Map, Hybrid, Terrain, and Satellite. Additionally vehicle traffic overlay can be enabled which may be helpful in an evacuation type of event.
This app is intended for the continental United States.
Bug reports, comments, concerns will be appreciated!
Disclaimer: The developer assumes no liability in how this app is used. This app is for entertainment purposes and is not a substitute for weather information, alerts, forecasts, and warnings from official sources. The data displayed in this app is not to be considered reliable in any way.
Quick data entry is paramount when determining what to pump on scene. Input on mobile devices can be tedious and sometimes difficult when forwarding the latest joke to your crew. Now imagine typing all the hose lengths, various flows and nozzle pressures when your at the “big one”! You can’t delay and recalling rote memorized hydraulic formulas can be difficult at 3am.
Most of the app is structured in a step-by-step fashion leading to the eventual calculated data, I.e. PDP, FL, etc. It was designed to be intuitive and easy to use. Please let me know what you would like to add, change or otherwise improve as this app is for you.
I'm rapidly developing and hope to add some seriously cool features for my brothers and sisters in the fire service across the globe. Stay connected!
With the Hcalc App you can find the pressure loss in pipework using the Hazen Williams formula which is specified in the NFPA 13 and EN 12845 for fire sprinkler systems. You can changed any of the 3 variables, flow, C-factor and the pipes internal diameter and the pressure loss will be calculated.
The second part of the calculator is used to solve the K-factor formula given the flow, K-factor or pressure at a nozzle or fire sprinkler head given the other two factors. By using the slider controls to vary any of the variables (flow, K factor, pressure) you can see the effect they have instantly.
Please remember to press the calculate button after you have made a change!
This version is in metric units only.
Please leave a review to let me know what you think.
The Hazen–Williams equation has the advantage that the coefficient C is not a function of the Reynolds number, but it has the disadvantage that it is only valid for water.
Input parameters are flow, pipe diameter, lenght of pipe and C is a roughness coefficient, known as William Hazens coefficient, with values between 90 (more rough pipes) and 140 (smooth pipes, ex PVC).
You can select between imperial (U.S. customary units) and metric unit (International System of Units).
If you want to take into account the pressure loss in fittings and valves, and the selection coefficient C for each material, then find our version of the application pro at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.transparentblue.headlossplus
The application should support the officer-in-charge of the fire service with their management decisions and therefore assure the success of the operation.
The application is based on the positive experience during the work assignment of the German fire services.
Besides tactical regulations for special operations, the application provides as well a function for locating the current position, which enables a top view of the map extract.
A must for every firefighter!
