The American Society of Agricultural Engineers' Committee on Sprinkler
Irrigation is developing a standard procedure for determining water distribution
patterns of sprinkler heads used in agriculture. When this procedure
is developed and used by the manufacturers of sprinkler heads, or
when a sprinkler testing organization conducts the tests and publishes the
results, data will be available which can be used to design better sprinkler
systems. Using the water distribution pattern test information in sprinkler
system design would give an added incentive for testing and publishing
the data as well as replacing the sprinkler selection method presently
used in sprinkler design with a method having an engineering basis.
