Water system hydraulic network analysis can be accomplished rapidly and accurately using microcomputer systems affordable by engineering firms and staffs of major water utilities. Simulations of different water demand conditions for a number of municipal water systems were conducted using the University of Kentucky pipe network analysis program. The combination of a state-of-the-art analysis program and an economical, reliable microcomputer system provide the engineer with tools necessary to model the response of a given water system to various existing and projected future demand conditions. The principal engineering application is the assessment of water system response to new development.
