Because of the characteristics of the Jacobian matrix, modifications to the Newton's approach of solving pipe networks can be done in such a way that convergence toward the solution is ensured, computer time and memory storage are saved. The modified Newton's algorithm not only ensures convergence, but also reduces the number of iterations when compared with the classical Newton's algorithm.
