Monolayer technologies can potentially provide a cost effective solution for reducing evaporation losses from farm dams. As every dam will have it's own set of environmental characteristics and user requirements, this needs to be considered holistically in order to determine a suitable monolayer material, application system and application strategy. Hence, a Universal Design Framework (UDF) was developed to enable this approach and to optimise the evaporation suppressing performance of monolayer. This paper details the UDF approach.
