Development Of Pre-Processing And Post-Processing Programs For Numerical Hydraulic Analysis Of Irrigation Pipelines
The author proposes a pre-processing and post-processing method using a simplified geographical information system to make the numerical hydraulic analysis of irrigation pipelines easy. In the pre-processing, the input data necessary for analysis can be created easily by processing KML files. These input/output format files in Google Earth make a placemark on Google Earth map. In the post-processing, detailed hydraulic phenomena of pipelines can be displayed visually on Google Earth bird's eye view by creating semi-automatic graph images and 3D graphs from the numerical analysis program output results. The smooth execution of a series of steps for numerical analysis can assist engineers to more efficiently perform designs.
