Seepage, percolation, cracking etc


The conveyance efficiency in irrigation projects is poor due to seepage, percolation, cracking, and damaging of the earth channel. Seepage loss in irrigation water conveyance system is very significant, as it forms the major portion of the water loss in the irrigation system. One of the main problem that meet the Ministry if Irrigation and Water Resources is that about 80% from its total length passing through silty clay soil. The quantity of seepage to surrounding area varies from section to other. The seepage losses affect the water surface profiles, slops, discharge, and water level. . Various methods are used to estimate the canal seepage rate. The main objective of this research are evaluating seepage losses at different critical sections and comparing between different emphirical, analytical and field mesure result.
