Sediment Transport in Irrigation Canals: A New Approach

Sediment Transport in Irrigation Canals: A New Approach

Herman Depeweg, Krishna P. Paudel, Néstor Méndez V

October 01, 2014

Sediment transport in irrigation canals influences to a great extent the sustainability of an irrigation system. Unwanted erosion or deposition will not only increase maintenance costs, but may also lead to unfair, unreliable and unequitable distribution of irrigation water to the end users. Proper...
