The SPACE program calculates Christiansen's Coefficient of Uniformity (CU), Distribution Uniformity (DU), mean application rate, minimum and maximum application rates, and a Scheduling Coefficient which is normally based on 1% of the covered area. Five reports can be generated as follows: A listing of the calculated values for the overlap pattern, A Denso-gram (See "A New Way To View Sprinkler Patterns", Irrigation Notes, August 1988, CATI pub. #880802) of the calculated values, A Histogram of the calculated values, a Profile of the data from a single leg test, and a "Sliding Window" report which is a summary of
The SPACE program is individually created for each user. The name of your organization will appear at the top of the generated reports.
calculated Scheduling Coefficients for different sized "Critical areas", (1%, 2%, 5%, and 10% of the total pattern area, and individual catchment values in the pattern). These reports can be displayed on the screen or a hard copy can be generated. A listing and a denso-gram of the actual values from a full grid catchment pattern can also be produced. The program can evaluate data from previously tested sprinklers that are stored on disk files. The Center makes available to interested users a disk containing all of the current sprinkler tests on file. The program can also be used to evaluate new data from tests performed in the field or from your own single leg tests. There is also a section of the program for copying and deleting data files and records in the files.
