P5_5 Running in the Rain

Francis Davies, Sabahudin Humayun, Ben Woodward


This paper investigates the degree of wetness that a person would experience whilst travelling on foot through the rain in various weather conditions. It finds that moving as fast as possible when travelling during conditions with no wind, a headwind and a light tailwind is best to minimise how wet one gets. It also finds that in the case of a strong tailwind, it is best to match the speed of the wind to minimise this.
