Methods used to determining friction loss calculations:
- The Friction Loss Tables
6") (by FireDepartment.net) are free to print and the easiest method to determine friction loss.
- The Friction Loss Calculator is also free and easy to use. But, it is requires you to have a device with internet access or downloaded an app.
- The Friction Loss Slide Rule starts at ~$20, have a high probability for human error and (assuming the same formula is used) the slide rule is the least accurate of the four methods listed.
- The Friction Loss Formula is also free to use. But, this method takes the most time, uses somewhat complex mathematics, and due to complexity has a very high probability of human error.
