Analysis of Canvas Concrete For Canal Lining Over Conventional Techniques.
Water resource is most important natural resource needed for survival and progressiveness of mankind. Canal lining is the process of reducing seepage loss of irrigation water by adding an impermeable layer to the edges of the trench. The conventional methods use for lining can cause seepage which result in losses of 30 to 50 percent of irrigation water from the canals. The Concrete Cloth is a unique property material because of which its fire and water proof. Concrete Cloth (CC) is a flexible cement impregnated fabric that hardens on hydration to form a thin, durable water proof and fire proof concrete layer. The Babulgaon dam canal is earthen canal had a water loss of over 0.33 m³ per sec. The concrete canvas proposed for the site helps in controlling the seepage loss and only the initial cost of construction is more than earthen lining and concrete lining
