Sprinkler System Design for Frost Protection

by R. D. von Bernuth, Univ of Tennessee, United States,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Irrigation and Drainage


Both undertree and overtree systems for frost protection by sprinkling are currently being used. The criteria based on experimental results and theoretical modeling have been reviewed for overtree systems and a method of selecting the application rate is presented. Experimental data for an undertree system compared to identical overtree system is presented, and criteria for design for undertree systems are presented.
