Ancient Irrigation Study

Research interest

Zhu started her PhD research on Ancient Irrigation Study in September 2010. The research aims at understanding ancient irrigation system by developing new approaches in combination with multidisciplinary study. For now, she is working on capturing the reality of the case of ancient irrigation in Zhengguo Canal of China with regard to different periods based on a timeline of implementation and reconstruction. The hydraulic model will be applied to analyze water flow process and water delivery within the canal system and the hydrological model will be used to simulate dynamic water system. The models demonstrating the human influence (e.g. population, settlement pattern and cropping behavior) will be built based on object-oriented architecture. Compared with pure physical modeling, the models developed will take into account multiple components as a truly integrative discipline.
