This paper reports on experience gained with the use of commercially available software for pipe network analysis. This information may be helpful to water system managers and consulting engineers who are considering the use of such tools. Networks with up to 1000 pipes can now be handled on microcomputers, subordinating calculation expenses and turnaround times more than ever before to comprehensive analysis. The software reviewed includes specific pipe network software packages and general problem solvers. Out of the numerous specific pipe network software, three were selected.
