WIDTH - shoulder to shoulder:
WIDTH - chest to back:
You present the following target areas:
From the top:
From the side:
From the front or back:
* our apologies for considering you to be shaped like a box!
Enter Your Speed: (1 m/s is strolling, 10 m/s is an olympic sprint)
Distance to Shelter: (1 m almost the same as 1 yard)
It will take you seconds to get to shelter.
Rain Speed: (2 m/s is a drizzle, 9 m/s for large drops)
Rain's Vertical Angle to the Front: (0 for straight down, 90 for completely horizontal. The larger this is the more rain hits you in the face or back when you are standing still. Use negative numbers for rain hitting you from behind.)
Rain's Vertical Angle to the Side:
Your numbers above mean the windspeed is:
Amount of Rainfall per hour:
mm (3 mm is about 1/8")
Amount or rain which will hit you:
Try a few variations in your speed (and any other conditions you wish) to see how much difference it makes.
From the top: ml
From the side: ml
From the front/back: ml
In total: ml
** Some results may surprise you at first. For example, try various running speeds with the wind behind you... you
stay the driest by running at about the same speed as the wind (basically turning it into vertical rain so you only get wet on the top).
Try shape numbers that are more like your dog or cat and the results will be very different - much more of their surface get the vertical component of the rain fall.
