1-9. MODULE DETERMINATION CHART - Continued
Formulas A = 2h + w + 5ft and B = 2h + L + 5ft have been devised to
determine the number of screen modules required. Do calculations in feet.
h - height of object, in feet + 2 feet (for overhead clearance)
L - length of object, in feet
w - width of object, in feet
A - width of screen, in feet
B - length of screen, in feet
That part of the object which falls within the slope of about 50, can be disregard-
ed in determining "L" or "w". This slope of about 50 gives maximum effec-
tiveness in camouflage.
To determine number of screen modules, calculate "A" and "B". Find "A"
value (screen width, in feet) on the Module Determination Chart and go across
to "B" value (screen length, in feet). Where "A" and "B" intersect on chart
will give you the number of screen modules required.
Example: A = 2 (8 ft + 2 ft) + 10 ft + 5 ft; B = 2 (8 ft + 2 ft) + 25 ft +
5 ft; A = 35, B = 50. The nearest size of screen according to the chart is a
two module configuration. Keep in mind that formula and charts are guides and
the selection of screens and the combinations must be tailored to the individual
