A comprehensive guide to water supply pipe system analysis and design

This authoritative resource consolidates information on the analysis and design of water supply systems into one practical, hands–on reference. After an introduction and explanation of the basic principles of pipe flows, it covers topics ranging from cost considerations to optimal water distribution design. Complete with examples, Design of Water Supply Pipe Networks covers:

  • Optimal sizing

  • Reorganization of existing water systems

  • Transportation of solids through pipelines

  • Water systems zoning, slurry flow, capsule transport, gravity flow systems design, and more

  • Single–input–source branched systems and looped systems

  • Multi–input–source branched systems and looped systems

  • Writing water distribution programs, including network analysis algorithms and programming

Throughout the guide, the logical progression and examples facilitate understanding. In addition, there are many closed–form design equations that can be directly adopted by design engineers. Accessible and comprehensive, this is the definitive reference for civil and environmental engineers involved in the planning, design, operation, and maintenance of water systems; water supply managers and planners; and postgraduate students in civil and environmental engineering.
