  • The underground canal of Southwest Kano Irrigation scheme was designed to ensure that water is conveyed with minimal erosion and sedimentation but over time it has been silted up to the extent that its conveyance capacity has significantly dropped. This study is based on simulation of sediment transport within the underground canal in Southwest Kano Irrigation Scheme boundaries using Hydrologic Engineering Centre – River Analysis System (HEC-RAS) model. Ackers-White sediment transport equation… CONTINUE READING
