ISADIM is a software tool intended to design and/or simulate set sprinkler irrigation systems. The irrigated area topography is modeled as a set of triangular surfaces, allowing the sprinkler positions to be calculated as the layout of the irrigation system is drawn on the screen.

ISADIM calculates head and discharge distributions along laterals and mainlines, based on the available head at the system inlet. ISADIM aims to be user-friendly. Irrigated areas, laterals and mainlines can be easily drawn with a few mouse clicks. Pipe diameters, sprinkler characteristics and other required data are gathered interactively during the drawing process. The resulting layout provides a visual image of the system, which simplifies modifications and error detection.

ISADIM runs under WINDOWS 95 or later.
