dc.description.abstractThis research examines the spray characteristics of fire hose streams. Smooth bore fire hose nozzles create jets with shear column breakup due to high Weber numbers. Laboratory settings produced a cylindrical water jet with the same column breakup behavior. The jet was injected into still air with fully developed turbulent flow. The test nozzle was oriented parallel to the floor. A patternator defined the shape and distribution of the spray. Shadowgraphy measurements determined the flow, drop size and velocity. The spray was tested in the middle of the liquid core.en_US
