 English term or phrase: hydraulic calculations process of using mathematics to solve problems involving fire hydraulics. Fire Hydraulics? Hydraulic Calculations = Berechnung der Hydraulik?
 Claudia Dvorak
 Explanation:"Fire hydraulics" is the science of water pressure and volume calculation in connection with fire fighting. Very important for bush and forest fires where no fire mains are available at the scene of the fire. Here are some informative sites with a definition: http://www.nv.cc.va.us/catalog/cat2000/descript/fir205.htm http://www.tri-c.cc.oh.us/SEM/Courses/FIRE.html "Hydraulic theory. Drafting of water, velocity and discharge, friction loss, engine and nozzle pressure, fire streams, pressure losses, flow and pump testing and application to fire service" Again though, this does not help you with your translation. Firefighters in Spain, France, Greece, Australia and the US need such calculation methods and people trained to do the calculation but in Germany and Austria, this problem does not come up often. +feuer +hydraulik did not turn up any worthwhile hits in the major search engines. Perhaps something with ??? "vor Ort Löschwasserberechnungen" or "Löschwasserberechnungen am Brandherd" ??? - HTH - Dan

Explanation:
Not sure about fire hydraulics, Feuerhydraulik seems likely, but it doesn't get any hits. It's something firemen study (see link). I hope this helps a bit. Eva
