Abstract: This paper presents the experiences and results of a network modeling study. A model for the University of Idaho water supply system was developed and verified to the extent possible with available data and field tests. The engineers faced a considerable challenge in characterizing pipe friction losses because of uneven ferrous deposits. Because of this problem, Darcy-Weisbach pipe flow was modeled using an unseparated parameter, f/D5, to measure pipe capacity.
