about

Urban Water Distribution Networks: Assessing Systems Vulnerabilities and Risksprovides 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
