Urban Water Distribution Networks: Assessing Systems Vulnerabilities, Failures, and Risks

328 pages


Urban Water Distribution Networks: Assessing Systems Vulnerabilities and Risks provides a methodology for a system-wide assessment of water distribution networks (WDN) based on component analysis, network topology and, most importantly, the effects of a network's past performance on its seismic and/or non-seismic reliability. Water distribution networks engineers and system designers face multiple operational issues in delivering safe and clean potable water to their customers.

Includes vulnerability assessment methods for water distribution pipes Discusses topological aspects and their effects on network vulnerability Explores analytical and numerical modeling methods for finding and analyzing systems vulnerabilities in water distribution networks Features real world case studies of networks under continuous and intermittent water supply operations
