Application of Clément's first formula to an arranged-schedule secondary canal
MetadataShow full item record
Clément's first formula was initially intended to determine discharge in on-demand pressurized irrigation networks; nevertheless, it can also be applied to canal systems because the irrigation process is similar. Discharges at a secondary branch of the Aragon and Catalonia canal (Spain). with an arranged schedule of 24-hour duration and 1-day delay, were analyzed. Since the canal was high-capacity and, as such, no request restrictions were necessary, Clément's formula could potentially simulate discharges in this case. Canal's intakes were modeled assuming normally distributed variables represented by their average and standard deviation. Clément's first formula accurately fit the observed cumulative probability curve of canal discharge at different sections. The relationship between the average intake's discharge and the product of the specific continuous discharge by the service area was also assessed. Clemmens' arranged delivery schedule equation does not apply to this case because the canal delivers pressurized irrigation and high turnout opening probabilities occur.

Data on section's discharge depending on scheduling of pressurized irrigation networks [Research data] Monserrat Viscarri, Joaquín (Universitat de Lleida, 2012-07)Data of three real networks are presented. The objective is to assess the cost reduction achieved when rotation scheduling is applied instead of on-demand scheduling. Demand discharges were calculated using Clement's ...
Monserrat Viscarri, Joaquín; Alduán, Andres (Springer Nature, 2020-07-10)Rotation scheduling implies a reduction in pipe flows and, consequently, in network cost. This kind of scheduling is considered rigid, but the recent development of new technologies, such as Supervisory Control And Data ...
Water distribution uniformity and scheduling in micro-irrigation systems for water saving and environmental protection Barragán Fernández, Javier; Cots Rubió, Lluís; Monserrat Viscarri, Joaquín; López Alonso, Raúl; Wu, I.P. (Elsevier, 2010)Micro-irrigation can apply water with high uniformity. However, uniformity alone is not sufficient to achieve the goal of irrigation. Irrigation scheduling is equally important in micro-irrigation systems. The significance ...
