IRRIGATION ENGINEERING

Details

Irrigation Engineering is designed for the undergraduate students of civil engineering at major Indian universities and engineering colleges. The text is also useful to the experts and professionals in the field of irrigation and agriculture.

 

The content is divided into two parts: Part A and Part B. Part A contain 21 chapters. In this part, the author has discussed various irrigation systems usually adopted in different agro-climatic regions in India. With neatly-drawn sketches, the design of irrigation structures for storage, diversion, distribution and control are illustrated with exam-oriented worked-out examples. Part B of the book comprises 27 irrigation/hydraulic structures (called plates), presenting sketches with usual three-views to scale of dams, spillways, canals and cross-drainage works. These sketches are furnished with all details and dimensions (workable drawings) with lucid and complete designs.
