Abstract:

This paper shows an application of network reliability modeling in water supply capital improvement programs. The proposed approach consists of combining geometrical and structural properties of pipelines in a Pipe Importance Factor defined as the rate at which water supply reliability improves as the reliability of the pipeline improves. A case study demonstrates the application.
