Water Supply System Analysis

Selected Topics

A water supply system is an interconnected collection of sources, pipes, and hydraulic control elements delivering consumers prescribed water quantities at desired pressures and water qualities. This book incorporates selected topics on theory, revision, and practical application models for water supply systems analysis, including: guidelines for transient analysis, sustainable management of regional water supply systems, infrastructure asset management, optimal pump scheduling, demand uncertainty, errors in water meter measuring, and indicators for water mains rehabilitation.
