ORCHARD - Orchard Sprayer Tower Dynamics is an easy-to-run code for simulation of the nonlinear stochastic dynamics of an orchard sprayer tower. The implementation follows an educational style, to make its use very intuitive.

Software History

This code was developed to conduct numerical simulations related to the stochastic simulation of an orchard sprayer tower moving on an irregular terrain emulated by a stationary Gaussian random process. The underlying results are reported in the following works:

Documentation

ORCHARD routines are commented in order to explain their functionality to the final user. Each routine has a short description about its purpose, and a list of inputs and/or outputs.
