Irrigation Engineering and Hydraulic structures book by SK GARG (free download)


Irrigation Engineering and Hydraulic structures book deals with irrigation engineering considering all aspects and then almost all hydraulic structures on the way of irrigation.

Irrigation is the Science of providing water to the lands in accordance with the requirements of the crops grown therein. It has been found to increase the productivity of rain-fed lands by as much as five times in a tropical country.
However, most of present utilisation of water is being used for irrigation alone.

Additional waters are, thus, required to be developed for bringing additional cropped area under irrigation, to increase our food and fibre production.

The techniques which are employed for development and management of water resources become vitally important in this context, and have been lucidly explained in Irrigation Engineering And Hydraulic Structures.
The present edition has further been revised and updated with rewriting of certain articles and with addition of certain new topics and numerical examples. The question bank containing questions of Engineering Services and Civil Services Exams. has also been updated.
