Abstract: Today the increased world population and therefore the growth demand has forced the us to investigate better water canal networks distributing much more water while at least keeping its quality. Canal design formulas are explicitly obtained for different cross-sections considering minimum area but optimal design of canal sections considering seepage, evaporation losses and soil erosion. By collecting the present parameters and estimating the water requirement, we have redesigned the existing Buckingham canal for the future use as the canal is not meeting the needs of crop water requirement and for the increased population for drinking. The design is done by the Kennedy’s method of design and Lacye’s method of design. The comparison of design parameters values of Kennedy’s method of design and Lacye’s method of design. A program is designed to calculate the design parameters easily for both the methods of design using c programming language.
Keywords: Canal Design, Kennedy’smethod, Lacye’s method.
Scope of the Article: Design and Performance of Green Building
