Flow Problems and Those of Soil Compaction in an Agricultural Farm
Pages : 13-16
In agricultural land can be observed problems regarding water and soil. The problems of water flow can cause breaks in pipes, and the problems associated with soil because of the passage of vehicles and lead to compaction, engender changes in soil parameter directly affects the infiltration water and fruit yield regression plants. In this paper, we will study numerically the flow in pipes and soil compaction. So, a first part examines the phenomena of demurrage pumps; When starting a pump, the speed of the electric motor rises from zero up to the permanent regime speed. This change in regime influences the flow of the hydraulic installation and forced it to follow the starting dynamic law of the motor. Under the effect of the friction force, due to the fluid viscosity, the transient regime is dumped until reaching the normal operating conditions.
Keywords: Compaction soil, method of characteristics, pipe, pump start-up, transient flow.
