[Ongoing Res.] Water Distribution Network Resilience and Reliability

Posted on December 1st, 2010 by Baoyu Zhuang

Notable studies has been completed on reliability of water distribution systems, however, there is no general accepted definition and evaluation method of the reliability. While carrying out reliability analysis, few researches take into account impact of pump and tank operation to the reliability of water distribution systems. In fact, water utilities would take actions to response emergence situation when component failure occurs in the system. The purpose of this work is to set up a reliability model with consideration of adaptive pump operation to analysis performance of water distribution systems.

This study has been initiated since I arrived the US at the begining of September, 2010. And it will be summarized to a conference paper and a journal paper. Thanks for Dr. Lansey and Dr. Kang for their kindly and selfless help.

The work was financially supported by the National Natural Science Foundation of China under Grant No. 50878140 and No. 50778121.

Journal Online Reviewing System is set up to provide a platform which could ease the review process and short reviewing duration.The editor could login the system and distribute papers to reviewers. Then the system would send emails to reviewers and notice them that there are papers to be reviewed. After the reviewers receive the notification, they could login the seystem and start to review papers. As soon as the reviewers finish reviewing, they could upload their comments and determine whether the paper is suitable to be published in our journal.

This work is finacially supported by China Water and Wastewater editorial.
