This user guide describes Epanet Calibrator Desktop Edition software created by Resan Team. It containsbasic information about setup and use of the software. Epanet Calibrator minimizes the difference betweenestimated and observed data (pressure and flow) changing the values of roughness and leakage coefficients.This guide is not an Epanet tutorial and you need some basic Epanet skills in order to use this program.
1.1 Overview of Epanet
Developed by EPA's Water Supply and Water Resources Division, EPANET is software that models waterdistribution piping systems. It is a Windows 95/98/NT/XP program that performs extended-period simulationof the hydraulic and water quality behavior within pressurized pipe networks.Pipe networks consist of pipes, nodes (pipe junctions), pumps, valves, and storage tanks or reservoirs. EPANETtracks the flow of water in each pipe, the pressure at each node, the height of the water in each tank, and theconcentration of a chemical species throughout the network during a simulation period. Chemical species,water age, source, and tracing can be simulated.EPANET provides an integrated computer environment for editing network input data, running hydraulic andwater quality simulations, and viewing the results in a variety of formats. These include color-coded networkmaps, data tables, time series graphs, and contour plots.EPANET is public domain software that may be freely copied and distributed.
