Abstract : This report relates the characteristics of the Holloman High Speed Test Track's simulated rainfield to those of a natural rainfield as defined by mathematical models propogated by other experiments. Data collected for heavy rain rates (25-30 in/hour) generated for Project Deluge in a controlled environment are analyzed and a tentative mathematical model relating the key parameters is provided. This report specifies the additional efforts required to finalize the model. (Author)
