Isometric 05 - Water Distribution System

Figure 35  Isometric 05 - Water Distribution System

Water is distributed from six reservoirs to 26 outlet points within a township.


The flow demands at the outlet points range from 0.3 MGD (US) up to 2.25 MGD (US).

Four centrifugal pumps are used to assist the supply from some of the reservoirs.


Pipe Flow Expert will calculate the flow rate in each pipe and the pressure at each node.


If a burst occurred in the system, the pipe would be 'closed off' while repairs occurred. The operation of the network in this situation can be modeled by 'closing' the burst pipe on the drawing.


Re-calculation of the system will instantly give the operating flow rates and pressure conditions throughout the system.
