An assessment of hydraulic design of trickle laterals considering effect of minor losses
The accurate design of trickle irrigation laterals needs to determine the total energy losses that includes the pipe friction losses along the lateral line and the local pressure losses, sometimes called minor losses, due ...
Analytical relationships for designing multiple outlets pipelines
(Asce-Amer Soc Civil Engineers, 2007)
In this paper an analytical procedure taking into account the nonuniform outflow profile for hydraulic analysis and design of multiple outlets pipelines, is presented. Energy relations are improved based on the average ...

Computer-based analysis of hydraulic design variables for uniformly sloping microirrigation system laterals
(American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2015)
Adequate analysis of lateral hydraulics is a very important concern for the design and evaluation of microirrigation systems. One of the main tasks of the lateral hydraulic calculation is to determine the pipe geometric ...
Determining operating inlet pressure head incorporating uniformity parameters for multioutlet plastic pipelines
(Asce-Amer Soc Civil Engineers, 2008)
An important objective of a microirrigation system is to determine the proper operating inlet pressure head, ensuring the desired level of water application uniformity as well as the allowable pressure head variation along ...
Computer-based analysis of explicit approximations to the implicit Colebrook-White equation in turbulent flow friction factor calculation
(ELSEVIER SCI, 2009)
The implicit Colebrook-White equation has been widely used to estimate the friction factor for turbulent fluid-flow in rough-pipes. In this paper, the state-of-the-art review for the most currently available explicit ...
Determining turbulent flow friction coefficient using adaptive neuro-fuzzy computing technique
(Elsevıer Scı Ltd, 2009)
In the analysis of water distribution networks, the main required design parameters are the lengths, diameters, and friction coefficients of rough-pipes, as well as nodal demands and water levels in the reservoirs. Although ...
