[en] This paper evaluates the application of a Gaussian tilting plume model to study
agricultural spraying drift. The spray drift deposit of each droplet diameter class,
measured by a laser particle analyser, is computed independently and summed
to give footprint results for different nozzle. The methodology is used to model
the drift from a fiat fan nozzle operating in a wind tunnel. Discrepancies with
experimental data and the potential for further improvement of this approach
are discussed.
