Irrigation System Selection and Design - Focusing on the types of systems, their components, water application concepts and system evaluation are goals for this module. At the beginning of each topic I give specific objectives that should tell you what we want you to focus upon. So, the overall objectives of this module are:
This means that the system should be designed so that the distribution system is matched to the available flow and pressure. Since water flowing in a pipe is subject to friction loss, a resistance to flow, the pipes are sized to minimize pressure loss and pressure variation within an irrigation zone, a group of sprinklers or emitters that operate together.
