Abstract

I have an idea of using converted helicopter rotors to push ground level humid air up to make rain. People tried to use jet engines to make clouds/rain. They made clouds but not rain (Vul'fson and Levin, 1987). There may be many reasons the jet engine failed to produce rain. To find out some differences between the jet engine method and the helicopter method, I made a simplified comparison between the two methods by using equation (8) in Alamaro, et al. (2006) and have some interesting findings.
