Wanted: Testers for Android Pump Operator Application
I'm developing an Android application designed aimed at providing calculations on complex line layouts. A summary of the application is below. I'm looking for people with pump operator experience who can give positive feedback on a beta version of the software that will be released in the Google Play store. If you are interested, please contact me via e-mail with:
1. your name
2. description of your Android device
3. your qualifications or experience with pump operation/calculations.
We are looking to start testing within the next week. We will provide a free copy of the software once it is deployed to the Google Play store. We are looking to test on a variety of devices, but only have a limited number of slots available for testing. Thank you.
------------------------------ Application Summary
The application is designed to aid firefighters with pump
operations/calculations. Features we are trying to support with this
1. Fully-configurable hose/nozzle/appliance layout that is specific to
1 or more engines.
2. Advanced PDP calculations that includes hose/appliance friction
loss (equation currently used: C * Q^2 * L). Coefficient of friction
3. Works with both SAE and Metric units (configured in preferences).
4. Supports an automatic calculation of smooth-bore flow rates (SAE and Metric).
5. Allows users to configure multiple discharging appliances (to
include 2-way gated wye or an appliance with any number of discharges
- 6-way monitor).
6. Allows users to configure line layouts and then enable discharging
per line (or per appliance discharge).
7. Calculates estimated time to empty given your engine tank size and
the current flow rate of discharging lines.
8. Allows users to configure sources that reduce the calculated PDP
for the engine.
9. Users can configure their device to mirror their real-life engine
configurations and then share these by exporting them via e-mail to
other users with the application.
10. Users can alter the order of attachments within a line easily and quickly.
11. Lines can be shared between engines. Users can configure multiple
engines in one database (since most departments have more than one
