Abstract:

An iterative procedure for the layout and design of new looped water distribution systems is pesented. The procedure is also applicable to the expansion of existing systems. The approach consists of a linear programming formulation linked to a network solver. A wide range of demand pattern and pipe failure combinations can be handled explicitly by the approach. Applications of the model to different types of problems encountered in water distribution design are discussed.
