Integrity of Interconnected Water Systems


Various theoretical and applied network theory approaches for assessing the reliability of water delivery systems are examined including signal flow methodology and connectivity as well as structural integrity in a utility-type power system network. Problems of topological and flow reliability and associated sensitivity analyses are discussed. Various criteria are applied to identify critical and structurally important components, including a method of calculating frequency of system failure. Various concepts are illustrated by simple examples.
