Irrigation system performance assessment is of high priority in irrigation research to solve the problem of irrigation development and management. It is obvious that many irrigation systems are performing below their capacity. This situation may lead to non-uniform and unreliable water distribution.
The mini sprinkler systems recently introduced for irrigation needs to be evaluated for their performance. A mini sprinkler system was evaluated for its hydraulic performance. The index of jet break up was obtained in all the three operating pressures in the range of 2.
Uniformity coefficient for all the system arrangements was in the range of Key words: Mini sprinker, uniformity coefficient, distribution uniformity, index of jet break up, hydraulic performance. Water is the most vital input in agriculture and has made a significant contribution in providing stability to food grain production and self-sufficiency. As compared to the surface water, greater proportion of additional irrigation water comes from the groundwater and this source is increasingly being exploited in an unscientific manner.
High application efficiencies can only be obtained by pressurised irrigation. Besides this, these methods can be adopted for almost all crops under variable topographic conditions and on different type better choices than surface irrigation methods. Sprinkler irrigation is the method of applying water above the soil surface in the form of spray or droplets, similar to natural rainfall.
The spray is obtained by the flow of water under pressure though small orifices or nozzles. There are different sizes of sprinkler nozzles available in the market depending on the operating pressure and discharge rates. By proper selection of sprinkler spacing and overlapping percentage between the sprinklers, the required quantity of irrigation water for specific soil to refill the crop root zone can be applied at a rate equal to the infiltration rate of soil.
Mini sprinkler irrigation is suitable for almost all crops. Water can be spread over row crops and under canopy of tree crops. But sprinklers with large water drops are not suitable for delicate flowering and fruiting plants because larger water drops developed by the sprinkler may damage the crop. In mini sprinkler irrigation system, water is conveyed along the pipeline under pressure, a part of the pressure developed at the initial end is lost by the friction in the pipes.
The sizes and types of laterals and main pipe selected should be such that the pressure loss due to friction for a given rate of flow remains within permissible limits. Mini sprinklers can be operated on a single sub-main, and 2 ha of shift can be operated at a time.
Only 50 m sub-main is required per hectare for mini sprinklers. Irrigation performance assessment is of high priority in irrigation research priorities needed to solve the problem of irrigation development and management.
No doubt, irrigation development has contributed immensely to national food security; to economic development and to poverty reduction, yet much more is expected from irrigated agriculture as a result of the increasing population. It is obvious that many irrigation systems are performing below their capacities. Therefore, a good starting point is to assess the performance of available irrigation systems in order to identify areas of lapses in the system design and make amends.
This uniformity coefficient is widely used by researches on the global scale and has been applied as a proven criterion to define water distribution uniformity. Distribution uniformity DU is a useful term for placing a numerical value on the uniformity of application for irrigation system. It is useful for calculating the average depth to be applied for certain minimum depth. Break-up of jet of water is necessary to obtain the uniformity of coverage and to minimize the droplet size. There is natural tendency of jets to break up because of air resistance.
Generally, break up increases with pressure and by having slots in the nozzle. Mean application rate MAR is the depth of water applied by the sprinkler on the soil surface per unit time. An ideal irrigation system should apply the correct amount of water, minimize the losses, and apply the water uniformly. A number of tests have been conducted to assess the performance of different sprinkler systems. Singh et al. Topak conducted a field test on performance evaluation of sprinkler system in semi arid area in Turkey.
Application efficiency is defined as the ratio of the average water depth applied and the target water depth during an irrigation event was It is important to accurately compute the amount of pressure loss in sprinkle and trickle irrigation system design otherwise it can cause lack of appropriate performance or failure of sprinkle and trickle irrigation. Valipour a compared the ability of single and tapered pipes in adjusting of pressure loss and concluded that the best diameters for tapered manifolds with single lateral were Valipour c examined the scrutiny of pressure loss, friction slope, inflow velocity and Reynolds Number in center picot irrigation.
The results showed that pressure loss was more sensitive and amount of inside diameter was in centre pivot irrigation system. Sprinklers can be a good investment when properly designed, installed, maintained and managed. The basic objective of hydraulic design of mini sprinklers is to obtain uniform distribution of water with desired rate of application, the break-up of jet with small drop size are essential to minimize the structural deterioration of the soil surface. A sprinkler set was setup with the following components.
The water was diverted from the existing delivery line of 63 mm diameter to the experimental setup. Sprinklers were operated at different operating pressures of 1. It was mounted on an installation stake 1. The mini sprinkler was connected to the lateral using a vinyl tube of 1. The mini sprinkler consisted of two nozzles. A setup with 9 mini-sprinklers was used in the experiment. The sprinklers were arranged in three different row spacing 12 m, 10 m and 8 m and three sprinkler spacings 12 m, 10 m and 8 m.
The middle sprinkler was considered as representative of actual field condition for taking the observations. The system was operated at three different pressures for hydraulic evaluation. Figure 1 shows the layout of the experimental setup. First factor: Pressure P with three levels viz. There are in total 9 combinations and each combination was repeated four times. First, the pressure level was maintained at 1.
Then, the pressure level was maintained at 1. The aforementioned procedure was repeated 4 times and average of the required parameters was obtained. Subsequently, the pressure level was maintained at 2. The same procedure was repeated 4 times and the average of required parameters was obtained. Now, pressure level was maintained at 1. As mentioned earlier, the procedure was repeated 4 times. Then the pressure was changed to 1. Similarly at operating pressures of 1. The mini sprinklers were operated for 30 min and the water emitted by the sprinklers was caught in catch cans.
This water depth in catch cans was recorded, and then converted into depth of water in accordance with the cross-sectional area of the catch cans. There are in total 9 combinations and four replications for each combination were conducted.
Generally, break up increases with pressure and presence of slots in the nozzle. The following empirical formula suggested by Tanda Pillsbury, is used to calculate an index of jet break up. The discharge was calculated by dividing the collected volume by the time of filling. The observations of discharge were recorded thrice for each operating pressure. The theoretical discharge of sprinkler nozzle may be computed from the orifice flow equation. The distribution uniformity is also known as pattern efficiency Pe.
The experiments were conducted with the catch cans to determine the volume of application during the time of operation of the sprinkler, at different places in the field. This depth was used to estimate the mean application rate of the mini sprinkler. It was estimated according to the following formula Hansen, The mini sprinklers were operated at different pressures and the throw radius was measured using a measuring tape.
By this way throw radius of all sprinklers were measured, and an average of this was calculated to give effective radius. The irrigation area covered by rotating head sprinkler was estimated by using the following formula suggested by Cavazza Pillsbury, It is because certain soils are subject to compaction under sprinkler application.
This tends to seal the surface soil layer, reducing the infiltration rate and thus may affect the yield. A drop's impact energy is determined by its mass and impact velocity. Large drops strike the soil with greater kinetic energy than small drops. Also, the amount of water that evaporates from a drop depends on the surface area of the drop, and on how long the drop is in the air.
Both of these factors are related to drop size. For small enough drops, it can be shown that even a slight wind can keep the drop suspended long enough that it will evaporate before it hits the ground Inoue, Christiansen showed that wind distorts the application pattern of a sprinkler. This distortion may affect the uniformity of water application and irrigation efficiency.
The extent of the wind effect depends on wind speed and direction, and on the sizes of drop in the spray. In the present study as shown in Table 1 and Figure 2, when the pressure was maintained at 1.
This value of index of jet break up near to 2. The pressure was then raised to 1. The value of index of jet break up when the pressure was maintained at 1. The droplet size is considered best if the value of index of jet break up is 4.
Exam Fee:. This assessment is generally intended for installers of commercial and residential sprinkler systems. It is also required by many jurisdictions for those performing inspection, testing, and maintenance functions. This is the most common sprinkler qualification recognized by jurisdictions. This exam goes into detailed code criteria dealing with sprinkler spacing, obstructions, hangers, seismic fittings, clearance of piping, ceiling pockets, small room rule, types of systems, air maintenance, drainage, and more. Questions also include basic calculations regarding friction loss through pipe, pressure impact of elevation, and similar concepts that professional installers need to be aware of. This exam covers a lot of material.
The alarm system shall be monitored by an Underwriters Laboratory UL , or equal, listed monitoring station. Daily milk yield was higher in the 1. Lumar Fire Protection has been Toronto's and Mississauga's premier source for state of the art fire protection equipment and sprinklers. Capping or removing a sprinkler is done differently depending on whether or not you live in an area that freezes and requires the irrigation system to be winterized. Q AOP Density for first sprinkler flow. Speculation may arise that there was a defect in the bulb from manufacturing or installation, which led to its eventual failure.
A fire sprinkler system is a critical component of life safety in a building. Often, the municipal water system has sufficient pressure to operate the sprinkler system. The building is equipped with a Class I wet manual standpipe system.
Девушка схватила деньги и сунула их в вырез блузки. - Grazie! - просиял итальянец. Он швырнул Беккеру ключи от веспы, затем взял свою девушку за руку, и они, смеясь, побежали к зданию клуба. - Aspetta! - закричал Беккер. - Подождите.
Но Стратмор не дал ей договорить. - Сьюзан, это же абсолютно ясно. Танкадо выгравировал ключ Цифровой крепости на кольце.
Холодные серые глаза смотрели безжизненно. Живший в ее сознании герой умер, превратился в убийцу. Его руки внезапно снова потянулись к ней в отчаянном порыве.
Он не хотел, чтобы оно попало в АНБ.
Сьюзан повернулась к. - Так скажите же мне. Стратмор задумался и тяжело вздохнул. - Пожалуйста, сядь, Сьюзан.
Когда? - Он заржал. - Она давно уехала. Отправилась в аэропорт несколько часов. Самое место, где толкнуть колечко: богатые туристы и все такое прочее.
Так, чтобы не осталось и следа. Сьюзан нахмурилась. Она понимала, что найти принадлежащую Хейлу копию ключа будет очень трудно. Найти ее на одном из жестких дисков - все равно что отыскать носок в спальне размером со штат Техас.
Мы созданы друг для друга. Сьюзан, я люблю. - Слова лились потоком, словно ждали много лет, чтобы сорваться с его губ.
Он улыбнулся, стараясь ее успокоить. - С Дэвидом все в порядке. Просто мне приходится быть крайне осторожным.
Высокооплачиваемые государственные служащие старались избегать демонстрации личного благосостояния. Для Сьюзан это не составляло проблемы: она была безмерно счастлива в своей скромной двухкомнатной квартире, водила вольво и довольствовалась весьма консервативным гардеробом. Но вот туфли - совсем другое. Даже во время учебы в колледже она старалась покупать самую лучшую обувь.
Перила были невысокими. Как это странно, подумал Стратмор, что насчет вируса Чатрукьян был прав с самого начала. Его падение пронзило Стратмора холодным ужасом - отчаянный крик и потом тишина. Но более страшным стало то, что он увидел в следующее мгновение.
Невозможно представить, что машина могла спутать пароль с командой отключения Следопыта. Понимая, что теряет время, Сьюзан вызвала на экран регистр замка и проверила, верно ли был введен персональный код. Все было сделано как положено.
Он схватился руками за боковые стороны проема и, одним движением вбросив свое тело внутрь, тяжело рухнул на лестницу. Халохот услышал, как где-то ниже тело Беккера упало на каменные ступеньки, и бросился вниз, сжимая в руке пистолет. В поле его зрения попало окно. Здесь.
В первый раз в жизни.
