Abstract

A computer software package for water distribution systems analysis has been developed for the city of Fort Worth, Texas, to overcome the problems of time consumption and human error, and to develop a software system that incorporates several submodels to ease in the painstaking tasks of analyzing operation and design of a large distribution system such as the one in Ft. Worth. This model is referred to as the Water Distribution System Analysis Software (WDSAS) system that allows the users to: 1) store the link-node configuration of a water distribution system along with other information such as nodal demands, friction factors, pumps, etc.; 2) access to the database and, if necessary, make changes; 3) execute the network simulation model using information from the database and store simulated results in the database; 4) present simulated results in graphic forms; 5) generate contour information of the simulated results such as elevation and pressure; 6) allow the generation of reports that describe the results of various simulations.
