Abstract

A mathematical model of dispersed phase transport of a nonsoluble pesticide in an irrigation pipeline is derived. Eulerian and Lagrangian approaches are used at high and low turbulence intensities, respectively. An equation is derived by equating pesticide surface tension and viscous forces to irrigation water drag force at the injection nozzle in order to estimate mean dispersed-phase chemical drop size within the irrigation pipeline.
