Imperial Version of DROPS Calculator


Imperial version of the DROPS Calculator designed to provide a high quality PDF suitable for generating posters or images to include within documents.

This revised version is more accurately aligned with the outputs from the Excel DROPS Calculator and now features the 40 Joule 'line' which some users may find particularly helpful. 

The DROPS Calculator provides a common benchmark in the classification of the potential consequences of a dropped object. This tool is best employed to inform risk assessments, but may also be used to classify potential outcome post incident.

One of a number of similar tools, the DROPS Calculator is endorsed by the DROPS Workgroup. While other ‘calculators’ exist, they all follow the same principle – plotting the mass of a dropped object against the distance it falls to determine its possible consequences.
