Hydraulic Analysis of Irrigation Network for the Proposed Taq-Taq Dam Using EPANET Software


Abstract-Analysis of the pipe network aims to determine the pressure drops and flow rates in the individual parts of the network. In this study, the EPANET software was used for automatically solving problems of the network. The main objective of this study is to analyze the irrigation network of the proposed Taq-Taq dam using hydraulic simulation software. In order to study the distribution of pressure, velocity and head on the pipe network to ensure the operation of the network efficiently and improve quantity of water distributed through the pipelines system. The study explained the velocity, pressure, and head distributions along the pipeline of the proposed irrigation project. The results concluded that the simulated model seems to be reasonably close to those of an actual network system
