Abstract

The AA. study the effect of wind on downward-spraying rainfall simulators and present a model that should help in the selection of single or multiple (by addition) full-cone spray nozzles in order to avoid laborious fieldwork characterizing the water distribution pattern applied to a certain plot area. The mathematical model presented in this study was developed from the movement of individual drops making it feasible to study other situations (e.g., drift from a sprinkler). Laboratory and field experiments were conducted to evaluate the adequacy of the proposed methodology
