OH 238- Irrigation System Design

Introduces students to the basic design and technical skills required to produce professional irrigation system designs. Building on the knowledge acquired in OH- 235, students will design complete spray and low- volume systems, calculate hydraulic parameters and schedules, prepare details and specifications, practice presentation skills, analyze working designs, learn head spacing and pipeline layout, and specify equipment using manufacturersÕ catalogs. A design studio environment is used (including team building and mentoring exercises) to prepare students for entry-level employment in the irrigation design field.
