Pressure-Driven Demand and Leakage Simulation for Pipe Networks Using Differential Evolution
World Journal of Engineering and Technology
Traditional techniques for hydraulic analysis of water distribution networks, which are referred to as demand-driven simulation method (DDSM), are normally analyzed under the assumption that nodal demands are known and satisfied. In many cases, such as pump outage or pipe burst, the demands at nodes affected by low pressures will decrease. Therefore, hydraulic analysis of pipe networks under deficient pressure conditions using conventional DDSM may cause large deviation from actual situations.doi:10.4236/wjet.2013.13008 fatcat:7bj6d2ecbvdahpnqkwos5hke7m
