This paper reports on an investigation of the possible influence of modelling errors on the relationship between the entropy and hydraulic reliability of water distribution systems. The errors are due to minor differences between the design optimisation and subsequent simulation models, which lead to small discrepancies between the capacity of the network(More)
ABSTRACT: Non-linear programming deals with the problem of optimizing an objective function in the presence of equality and inequality constraints. Most of the classical deterministic methods encounter two major problems: (i) the solution obtained is heavily dependent on the starting solution: and (ii) the methods often converge to inferior local optima.(More)
