  • Hydraulic simulation models could be suitable tools for understanding the hydraulic characteristics of irrigation systems. In this study HEC-RAS model will be tested in terms of error estimation and used to determine canal capacity potential. Thiba main canal reach in Mwea Irrigation Scheme (MIS), approximately 100 Kilometers North East of Nairobi City was selected. MIS being a model scheme in the country, its contribution to food security and growth of the sector is inherent. Sluice gates and… CONTINUE READING
