This textbook provides a comprehensive treatment of irrigation engineering for advanced undergraduates and graduate students. It does not require a background in calculus, hydrology, or hydraulics, offering a one-stop overview of the entire field of study. It includes everything a student of irrigation engineering needs to know: concepts of climate, soils, crops, water quality, hydrology, and hydraulics, as well as their application to design and environmental management. To demonstrate the practical applications of the theories discussed, there are over 300 worked examples and end-of chapter exercises. The exercises allow readers to solve real-world problems and apply the information they've learned to a diverse range of scenarios. To further prepare students for their future careers, each chapter includes many illustrative diagrams and tables containing data to help design irrigation systems. For instructors' use when planning and teaching, a solutions manual can be found online alongside a suite of PowerPoint lecture slides.

The subject “Irrigation Engineering” has assumed importance since last 30 to 40 years. Continued increase in population, particular in developing countries, at a very fast rate has caused scarcity of food. The real answer to food problem, is increased production of food articles; which is possible only by artificial irrigation of fields. India has a very large potential for irrigation, because area and water resources both are abundantly available. Abundance of area for irrigation arid availability of lot of water resources are probably the reasons that most of the early irrigation practices and theories were developed in India. There is lot of variations in rainfall in different regions of India. Some of the areas have very little rainfall insufficient to grow any crop. Other areas have sufficient rainfall but its distribution is not as required by the crops. Scanty rainfall and erratic distribution both necessitate artificial irrigation. The purpose of this book is to present the subject in most concise form. Simplicity of language is the main feature of the book. The book is completely in MKS units and covers the syllabus of all the Indian Universities, State Technical Boards, and A.M.I.E. (India) examinations. The book should be equally useful to practicing Engineers as reference book. Examples of almost all the important irrigation works have been solved and then illustrated in neat drawing charts. Khosla’s Charts, Lacey’s and Garret diagrams all are in MKS units. Rajsons Publications Pvt. Ltd. Every effort was made to eliminate printing errors. I would appreciate if printing errors are brought to my notice and Suggestions to bring about improvements in the book are most welcome. I am thankful to all my friends who have rendered great help by their valuable suggestions. In last I am thankful to Shri R.K. Jain, Prop. Standard Book House, without whose efforts this venture would not have reached the readers.

This report contains 27 papers that serve as a testament to the state-of-the-art of civil engineering at the outset of the 21st century, as well as to commemorate the ASCE's Sesquicentennial. Written by the leading practitioners, educators, and researchers of civil engineering, each of these peer-reviewed papers explores a particular aspect of civil engineering knowledge and practice. Each paper explores the development of a particular civil engineering specialty, including milestones and future barriers, constraints, and opportunities. The papers celebrate the history, heritage, and accomplishments of the profession in all facets of practice, including construction facilities, special structures, engineering mechanics, surveying and mapping, irrigation and water quality, forensics, computing, materials, geotechnical engineering, hydraulic engineering, and transportation engineering. While each paper is unique, collectively they provide a snapshot of the profession while offering thoughtful predictions of likely developments in the years to come. Together the papers illuminate the mounting complexity facing civil engineering stemming from rapid growth in scientific knowledge, technological development, and human populations, especially in the last 50 years. An overarching theme is the need for systems-level approaches and consideration from undergraduate education through advanced engineering materials, processes, technologies, and design methods and tools. These papers speak to the need for civil engineers of all specialties to recognize and embrace the growing interconnectedness of the global infrastructure, economy, society, and the need to work for more sustainable, life-cycle-oriented solutions. While embracing the past and the present, the papers collected here clearly have an eye on the future needs of ASCE and the civil engineering profession.
