Friction Loss Calculator for firefighters and driver/ operators. This app is intended for 'entertainment' purposes only. This app simply calculates the FL=CQ^2L+.5H formula and is based on the coefficients found in the IFSTA Driver/Operator Handbook, second edition.
This is the free edition of this calculator and it is supported by ads. I have done my best to place the ads in a manner that does not interfere with the app itself. If you have any problems with ads overlapping app content, or find any other bugs please email me at the address below.
I have plans for a paid version that will include many more features, an improved interface and I will remove the ads.
Thank you and enjoy!
New look to the user interface, sliders should be easier for some devices that previously had problems. Added the ability to input elevation gain and loss. Resized layouts so smaller screens no longer scroll.
