In this study, a computer program is developed which enables us to design a water distribution system which satisfies all constraints including pipe diameters, low velocities, and nodal pressures with a minimum total cost. The hydraulic analysis of the water distribution system is performed by the Newton-Raphson method. This analysis is coupled with a non-linear optimization technique in order to minimize the design total cost. Accuracy of the developed computer program is approved by applying… CONTINUE READING
