Main objectives of the project: • Designing the irrigation system for a specific area. • The first step is to determine the water source. • The water source may be surface water (River, Lake, Rainfall, … etc.). • It also may be groundwater. Rainfall G.W.T Runoff River
Main objectives of the project (cont.): • After that it is required to design the conveyance system. • Then design of the on farm irrigation system. • Design of the hydraulic structures. • Design of the pumping units.
Irrigation project 2013: • The water source was the rainfall. • Some hydrological calculations was made to calculate the runoff from the given rainfall data. • Choosing the location of a dam used to collect the runoff. • Some statisticalanalysis was made to determine the design discharge for the dam. • After that the project groups were divided into two main groups.
Irrigation project 2013 (cont.): • The first group was responsible for designing the dam. • The other group was responsible for designing the on farm irrigation system.
Soft-wares used in preparing the project: • Autocad. • Watershed Modelling System (WMS). • Google Earth. • Global Mapper. • Autocad Civil 3-D.
