Decision support system for designing underground pipeline system
Author(s): Manish Ahuja, Sanjay Kumar, AK Goel and Mehraj
Abstract: Underground pipeline water distribution system is a water conveying system to different points in the farm and allied structure required for the efficient use of water. It saves the cultivation area upto 2-4% which get covered in open channel system (Michael, 1978). The optimum pipe diameter gives the least total cost for annual pumping power and fixed cost. Underground pipe lines are fixed and permanent thus require high accuracy and skill in installation to avoid various hydraulic losses. Therefore it is important to study the designing of underground pipeline. Therefore to help the farmer about the selection of most appropriate diameter of underground pipeline, a decision support system is to be designed. For the development of software visual basic 6.0 programming language was used. The input data required for the software is Discharge of tube well (lt/sec), length of pipe (m), no. of bends, type of pipe, elevation difference between input and output (m). The output is suitable pipe size.
