This paper describes a preliminary cyberinfrastructure for contaminant characterization in water distribution systems and its deployment on the grid. The cyberinfrastructure consists of the application, middleware and hardware resources. The application core consists of various optimization modules and a simulation module. This paper focuses on the development of specific middleware components of the cyberinfrastructure that enables efficient seamless execution of the application core in a grid…

False Negative/Positive Issues in Contaminant Source Identification for Water-Distribution Systems

A data-mining procedure is described and applied, which involves mining an offline-built database to select PINs that possess first-detection times within ±  m from the online sensor first- Detection time, with m selected to address issues of false negatives and positives.

Utility of Supercomputers in Trace-Back Algorithms for City-Sized Distribution Systems

The online data mining procedure, i.e., the PIN identification, is integrated into a geographic information system toolkit for rapid emergency response and results show that increasing the number of scenarios in the database can provide input to compute the “m” value, always reduce the false-negative rate of each sensor, and usually reduce the numberof false-positive PINs.
