  • The water networks with internal water mains have an advantage for easy operation and control. In this paper, based on the understanding of the physical insights of the water networks with internal water mains, a new rule-based design methodology is presented. In this methodology, firstly an original water network is obtained by using a basic mathematical programming model. Then the water sources and water sinks for each internal water main are selected over again. At last following the… CONTINUE READING
