WinSRFR is a hydraulic analysis tool for surface irrigation systems. The simulator predicts the surface and subsurface flow of water as a function of system geometry, infiltration, hydraulic resistance, and inflow management.  The software also integrates evaluation, operational analysis, and design functionalities. Intended users are irrigation specialists, extension agents, researchers, consultants, students, and farmers with moderate to advanced knowledge of surface irrigation hydraulics. WinSRFR 5.1 is the fifth major release of the software (September 2019).  WinSRFR 5.1 adds an option for modeling furrow infiltration based on the Green-Ampt equation, an option for modeling border infiltration with the one-dimensional Richards equation, a new evaluation component (EVALUE) that can be used for the estimation of infiltration and hydraulic resistance parameters, a fertigation simulation component based on advective-dispersive transport principles, and new options for specifying furrow infiltration for operational and design analyses.
