Save Your Water: Mathematically Optimizing Sprinkler Irrigation
City:Belleville, ON
School:Moira S.S.
Abstract:In-ground irrigation systems are widely utilized in the agricultural and recreational sectors. Therefore improving irrigation efficiency is very important, as it saves water. The purpose of this project is to mathematically model and theoretically optimize sprinkler placement to minimize irrigation overlap and to reduce the amount of water wasted.
