Abstract:

Over the last two decades, computer applications in water supply and distribution systems have advanced rapidly from the stand-alone applications in system modeling to the integrated platform for system automation. The progression of these developments can be categorized into a number of distinct stages, based upon their application scope and their off-line or on-line application format. A summary of these developments and a view to the future projection are given in this paper.
