In order to assess whole-field sprinkler irrigation uniformity, an experiment was conducted to obtain water distribution profiles at 23 different pressures for each of five different sprinklers: Nelson R33, Nelson R33LP, Nelson R33 with road guard, Nelson R33LP with road guard, and Rainbird Mini Paw/LG-3. A mathematical model was developed to account for(More)
A model was developed to analyze the steady-state hydraulics of branching pipe networks as found in on-farm pressurized irrigation systems with multiple outlets at sprinklers or emitters. The model uses a new methodology to identify all flow paths based on a shortest-path algorithm. It also uses elevation and hydraulic parameters to determine which outlets(More)
