(Received 28 February 1992; final version received 10 August 1992; accepted 10 November 1992)ABSTRACTAn optimization algorithm with recourse to a nonlinear programming technique based onthe interior penalty function with Davidon-Fletcher-Powell method, incorporating the graphtheoretic approach for analysis of networks, has been developed for design of functionaland least-cost water distribution systems with multiple reservoirs. The model has the capabilityto design a new system as well as to reorganize an existing system. Reorganization ofa system becomes necessary due to increased water demand resulting from an increase inpopulation density and enhanced service levels or expansion to the new areas. Further, thehydraulic simulator based on graph theory enables design of all types of systems; viz. branched.looped or a combination thereof including nodes with specified fixed energy grades. Thesoftware package has been developed for use on an IBM-PC compatible micrrDcomputer. Timefficacy of the algorithm has been demonstrated through an example on design of a typicalwater distribution system.

The software has been developed in FORTRAN language and is available for use on IBMPC-XT/AT compatible personal computers under MS-DOS as well as on HP-9050-AM computersystem under HP-UX operating system (Hewlett-Packard, USA).The software is available from the authors at the National Environmental EngineeringResearch Institute, Nehru Marg, Nagpur - 440 020, India.INTRODUCTIONConsequent upon the launching of the InternationalDrinking Water Supply and Sanitation Decade (1981-1990), organized water supply was accorded highpriority in less developed countries. The review ofachievements against the goals set for the decadeindicate a considerable shortfall due to inadequatefinancial resources amongst other constraints. Waterdistribution is a cost intensive system and,accordingly, the situation could be resolved to a largeextent through the application of mathematicalprogramming techniques for cost minimization.Several researchers have developed algorithmsbased on heuristics, and linear and nonlinearprogramming techniques, to solve the problem ofcost minimization for water distribution system.Featherstone and El Jumaily [1] hypothesized thatan unique linear gradient exists for a balanced networkwhich results in the optimal solution.

[2] developed user friendly software based on the trialand error approach to identify the op6mal combinationof pipe sizes.Quindry et al. [3] developed
algorithm basedon the gradient search technique incorporating a linearprogramming approach. Swamee et al. [4] developedan algorithm to reorganize a distribution systemwhere the network is synthesized
via linear
programming to yield the new pipe diameters and theinput point pumping beads.Watanatada [5] used Davidon-Fletcber-Powellmethod to solve an unconstrained version of a 54node network and reported on the unsuitability of theapproach for large size networks. C, nedese et al. [6]formulated a multiobjective optimization problemconsidering construction cost (capital cost) andmanagement cost (operational cost) as the twoobjectives and obtained a Pareto optimal set (i.e. aseries of compromise solutions which take intoaccount the existing relation between different pointsof view) for a direct pumping water distributionsystem. Chiphinkar et al. [7] developed an algorithmusing interior penalty function with Davidon-Fletcber-Powell method and demonstrated the efficacy of theapproach through a case study for a large sire system.Lartsey and Mays 181 developed a methodologybased on reduced gradient method using an augmentedLagrangian approach to incorporate pressure headbounds in the objective function.This paper addresses itself to the developmentof software for optimal design of a new, or optimalaugmentation of an existing, combined pumping andgravity system with multiple reservoirs. For a newdesign problem, given a network configuration, theprogram computes the pipe diameters and reservoirheights which minimize the total cost of the systemwhile satisfying the quantity and head requirements.For reorganization, since the height of the existingreservoir and the existing pipeline must remain fixed,functional design is achieved through additionalpipes provided in parallel with existing oneswherever necessary and providing new reservoir(s) orenhancing the pumping capacity. The efficacy ofthe algorithm is demonstrated through an exampleconsidering reorganization of a typical waterdistribution system.estimation of frictional bead-loss in pipes. It has beenshown by Jain et at. [9] that the use of this formularesults in errors up to =1=.30% and :f.55% in the estimationof velocity and frictional bead-loss respectively forextreme conditions of velocities and pipe roughnessencountered in practice. The researchers also presentedthe Modified Hazen-Williams formula which obviatesthe inherent limitations of the Hazen-Williamsformula and has been employed in this research.Thus, frictional bead-loss in a pipe link
can be
estimated as,

Cost Model
The total cost of a water distribution system is thesum of individual cost components in the system, i.e.pipe network, pumping systems, power, anddistribution reservoirs.Capital cost of pipe, including the cost of layingand jointing, can be expressed as,Cpip~ = K I L D" ...(2)in which, C. is the cost of pipe in Indian Rupees
(1 US $ = 25.95 Indian Rupees); and K I and a amcoefficient and exponent of the regression equation andare functions of pipe material.Cast iron (CO, asbestos cement (AC) and galvanizediron (GI) pipes have been considered for regressionanalysis. Cost data have been taken from the Scheduleof rates (1990-91) provided by the Maharashtra WaterSupply and Sewerage Board, India. The values ofcoefficients for different pipe materials obtained byregression analysis (Eq.2) are presented in Table 1.FORMULATION OF PROBLEM

A water distribution network may be viewed asa directed linear graph which is composed of a collectionof finite number of edges (pipe sections each witha specified length, diameter and roughness coefficient).A spanning tree is a connected system of edges which
