CANAL was developed in 1987 at Utah State University to perform hydrodynamic computer simulations of canal networks. This paper describes the model and offers opinions on the model's strengths, weaknesses, and applications. Several test data sets compiled by the ASCE Task Committee on 'Irrigation Canal System Hydraulic Modeling' were used to evaluate program CANAL.
