Mujumdar, PP (2000) Resiliency Estimates for Irrigation Systems. In: Xth World Water Congress, March 12-16, 2000, Melbourne, Australia.
In this paper, the criteria and methodologies proposed by Hashimoto et al (1982) and Fiering (1982), for estimating resiliency are applied to an irrigation system consisting of a single reservoir serving multiple crops. The resiliency is related to the soil moisture depletion. The failure index is determined based on the irrigation deficit occurring in a period. Partial failures are considered by defining a demand factor. The methodology is demonstrated for a case study in India.
