Hi there,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I've spent some hours on trying to make a simulator (in Excel) for calculating the forces involved in a climbers fall.

I've found the following link (http://toad.stack.nl/~stilgar/calc.php) but can't figure it out - Maybe because my grades back in high-school were terrible :uhh:

Could anyone please help me making the formulas?

The following variables will be available:

- Lenght of rope (in meters)

- Fall factor / Height of fall

- Dynamics of rope (in percent @ 80kg)

- Weight of climber (in kg)

Thanks in advance
