Abstract:
Drip irrigation design is a multi-step routine that has to be carried out in a step by step fashion with each step covering a part of the design process. An expert system has been developed with a set of external programs to accomplish the drip system design. The expertise used in the present expert system knowledge base was induced from engineering handbooks and articles as well as personal consultations. The expert system has been developed in such a way that a variety of cases can be handled. In addition, to simulate the human expert, a new drip irrigation design evaluation factor has been introduced (Design Success Indicator, DSI) in order to estimate the system response on field depending on the confidence of data being used. The results are very promising with respect to the expertise used. However many parts of the knowledge-base have to be fine-tuned in order to reach a highly performing expert system.
