Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Irrigation and Drainage


MODIS is an implicit hydrodynamic modeling package that has been developed to investigate the hydraulic performance of dynamic controlled irrigation systems. The model's most apparent features are its accurate computation of a wide range of standard structures and its many operation possibilities. Furthermore, the model is able to compute performance indicators which allow for a fast and diagnostic interpretation of the model results. The user interface is not menu driven and the program is not public domain. The program is most suitable for experienced users and for large systems.
