Hi there,

 

In essence:

 

I have a point located inside of a closed surface. The surface is non-uniform and consists of overhangs and areas not directly visible from the point.

 

I am am trying to find the area of the surface that Is direcly visible from the point, i.e. Areas where there is an unbroken line of sight between point and surface.

 

Application:

 

I have a machine that sprays water in all directions. It is located inside of a irregular shaped tank. I am trying to find the area of the surface that the water directly hits.

 

Thanks!
