Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Irrigation and Drainage

Abstract: Unsteady canal simulation models require serious investments of time and personnel. The reasons for deciding to invest in a model, as well as reasons to not invest, are discussed. Canal models can simulate an actual canal, but the user must input the necessary control algorithms in order to study the effects of various types of automation and control. The user must also understand the basics of the system to be modeled and have the time and capability to determine if model results are reasonable and sound.
