Irrigation Engineering and Hydraulic Structures by Garg is a very popular and fabolous book in the arena of irrigation engineering and water resources engineering. This book covers about everything that is related with irrigation engineering and that related part of hydraulic structures. Since its publication in the year of 1976, this book has been treated as one of the classic irrigation engineering book of all time. So the demand for Irrigation Engineering and Hydraulic Structures is still the same as it was before.

Irrigation Engineering and Hydraulic Structures by Garg

Irrigation Engineering and Hydraulic Structures

There are some revisions and additions to this 19th volume of Irrigation Engineering and Hydraulic Structures by Garg. S.I units had been adopted, chapters are included and questions of different goverment civil engineering jobs are also included in this text. Designs of irrigation channels using Kennedy equations and kutters equations are also discussed keeping in view the characteristics of indian rivers. This will help to obtain certain and specific data about indian rivers and also help to design aluvial rivers and channels. Detailed study of sediment deposit and sediment carrying characteristics are included in this edition. Various irrigation techniques using surface irrigation method and sub-surface irrigation method are classified and discussed. Various terms related to irrigation engineering such as field capacity, root zone depth, root development,water characteristics, ions in water, toxicity of irrigation water, capillary water, delta of water, duty of water are discussed elaborately. Crop period and base period,crop seasons and Indian agriculture,Effective rainfall.consumptive use of water, consumption irrigation requirements,net irrigation requirement(NIR) etc discussed briefly to meet the students requirements. Chapters named canal irrigation system and Sediment transport and design of irrigation channels are included in the Irrigation Engineering and Hydraulic Structures by Garg. Lining of irrigation channel is very important so, a chapter named lining of irrigation channels and economics of lining are included. Different hydrologic computation and examples are also included in a different chapter of Irrigation Engineering and Hydraulic Structures by Garg.
