Water Distribution Networks Engineers and System Designers face multiple operational issues in delivering safe and clean potable water to their customers. Urban Water Distribution Networks: Assessing Systems Vulnerabilities and Risks provide 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. Vulnerability assessment methods for water distribution pipes Discusses topological aspects and their effects on network vulnerability Analytical and Numerical Modelling methods for finding and analyzing systems vulnerabilities in water distribution Networks Real world case studies of networks under continuous and intermittent water supply operations
