Reservoir Survey Analysis and Sedimentation Simulation (RESSASS)
allows engineers to quantify reductions in reservoir storage volume due to sedimentation and the impact of reservoir operating policies on these losses. The volume analysis module maximises the speed and accuracy of analysis of range line survey data. The impact of future sedimentation on stage-volume curves can be predicted using the volume prediction module. In addition to the two modules, a numerical model provides a capability to undertake more detailed simulations of the future deposition patterns in a reservoir and hence their impact on storage capacity.

WaSim is a computer-based training package for the teaching and demonstration of basic issues involved in irrigation, drainage and salinity using background climate information. WaSim is a one dimensional model which simulates the soil/water/salt relationships in response to different management strategies, drainage options and environmental scenarios. Its straightforward visualisation of calculations and results make it easy to compare varying scenarios and quickly enhance students' understanding of complex problems.

Sediment Hydraulic Analysis for Rehabilitation of Canals (SHARC) allows design engineers to identify sediment problems in irrigation canals and evaluate different solutions. The program offers 6 modules:

  • Problem diagnosis and identification of technically feasible improvements.
  • Preliminary economic screening of options for improvement.
  • Design tools, including prediction of performance.
  • Hydraulic simulation and sediment routing to predict changes in whole-scheme performance.
  • Checklists to assist Environmental Impact Assessment.
  • Economic analysis to derive an optimum economic solution

Optimising water allocation
Output summary
Pre-processor manual
Download the OptALL
pre-processor
OPTALL is a package that can optimise the allocation of water resources within complex irrigation distribution networks. The optimisation routines are based on quadratic programming and have as their objective minimising crop yield reductions resulting from water stress, under the constraints of canal capacities and maintaining equity in supply. The package and supporting documentation are available from the School of Civil & Environmental Engineering at the University of Edinburgh. The OptALL pre-processor can be used to set up network files and gives an indication of the potential of the package.
