Water-pumping mills are used in crop irrigation and water supply for livestock in various semi-arid regions around the world including the plains of North America. This technology is also a key to providing drinking water to people of developing countries. By providing a thorough treatment of the factors which affect the success of pump performance, combined with the fundamentals of machine design, this book distinguishes itself from a simple design manual. It allows the reader to determine the most efficient wind-pump configuration based on their specific needs and resources, and discusses the latest international developments in wind-driven water pumping technologies, including a survey of the advantages and disadvantages of the alternative configurations to the more "standard" designs.
