Serial Information: Journal of the Pipeline Division, 1966, Vol. 92, Issue 1, Pg. 13-26

Document Type: Journal Paper


A graphical method for the solution of the flow distribution and pressures throughout a branching pipe network is presented. This procedure yields a direct solution avoiding the customary trial and error technique. An example is presented wherein the magnitudes of both sources of supply and outflows from the network vary with system pressures.
