Electronic DROPS Calculator

Electronic excel based calculator for determining potential consequence of a dropped object.

With thanks to Shell and Total for their generous assistance in the development of this electronic tool.

The DROPS Calculator provides a common benchmark in the classification of the potential consequences of a dropped object. 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.
