Fittes, D.W., 1953. THE EFFECT OF SURFACE TENSION ON THE PERCOLATION OF WATER THROUGH FIRE HOSE. Fire Research Notes 60
This note describes experiments to determine the effect of surface tension on the percolation of water through unlined canvas fire hose. In a comparison of tap water having its surface tension conditioned to two different values by addition of a wetting agent, it was shown that the rate of percolation decreased more rapidly from its its initial value at the lower value of the surface tension.
