Transcript of "CT4410: What is irrigation?"

  1. 1. Irrigation and Drainage CT4410 Irrigation and Drainage CT4410 Maurits Ertsen 1 Water Resources Management
  2. 2. This morning• Outline of the course• Practicalities • Tasks • Procedures • Assessment • Blackboard• What is irrigation about? December 14, 2011 2
  3. 3. Outline of the course: goalsAfter this course you should be able to• Make a (preliminary) design for an irrigation/drainage system, taking into account proper procedures and data.• Discuss management implications in relation to hydraulic design and behaviour of the system.• Explain the importance of modernization in irrigation.• Present key issues and analysis to other students in a web-based platform.• Link design decisions to relevant scientific literature.December 14, 2011 3
  4. 4. Outline of the course: sessionsDuring 7 morning sessions several issues will bediscussed (applying several formats, including lectures,discussions, exercises etcetera).The material and issues developed in these sessions are to beapplied in the exercises.The sessions provide the background for the final exam.December 14, 2011 4
  5. 5. Overview of sessions• Session I What is irrigation• Session II Irrigation game• Session III Requirement and delivery• Session IV Modelling of irrigation systems I• Session V Distribution and management• Session VI Modelling of irrigation systems II• Session VII Irrigation and tradition December 14, 2011 5
  6. 6. Products Exercises After each session, students prepare an exercise, applying the results of the session to their own ideas of irrigation system design in relation to scientific papers provided as study material. Details of each exercise are given on the discussion board in Blackboard. Design assignment Focus is on designing a simple irrigation system consisting of (1) a main canal grid for irrigation and drainage, (2) control structures and (3) one detailed typical secondary and tertiary unit. A simple hydraulic model is used, in which disturbances can be analyzed. Based on this modelling, the designer evaluates the design made. The detailed assignment is given in a separate document. Peer review During the course students will give feedback to each other. December 14, 2011 6
  7. 7. AssessmentFinal markBoth the final design exercise and the final exam contribute 50% of the finalmark.Please note that it is obligatory to provide all the homework products before thedeadlines given. The homework products are included in setting the mark for thefinal design.In case one (or more) homework exercise(s) is (are) not provided in time, nofinal mark will be given.December 14, 2011 7
  8. 8. Blackboard• All the stuff I want you to use is on Blackboard.• If you want to use more – or know more – just ask…• Please note that the details on how to calculate canals and structures is pre-required knowledge. • You could check CT3410-09 for details on those issues.December 14, 2011 8
