Modelling city's firefighting water networks

Extreme heat and drought preceded by rainy seasons suggests considering the importance of urban protection against fire threat that natural forested environment entails. Caution should lead us not to trust much in the assistance of external means given the possible fires simultaneity. This climatic trend accelerates year after year as recent records say. Should we consider whether the threatened areas are sufficiently protected?...

Modeling Hydropneumatics Tanks in KYPipe

Hydropneumatics tanks (hydrotanks) use compressed air to maintain the pressure in a distribution system as opposed to overhead storage tanks, which rely solely on water elevation. They are commonly smaller and less expensive than overhead storage tanks and are used to control pump cycles in raw water, potable water, and sewer systems.

Non-Reopening Check Valves

The way Pipe2016 models an “ordinary” check valve is by allowing it to open when the differential pressure across the valve reaches any positive value, even as small as +0.00001 ft of head. The reverse is also true, the valve starts closing when the differential pressure drops below zero, even very slightly

Dynamic Characteristics of Check Valves

Improper sizing of check valves results in check valve slam, a phenomenon that produces undue increase in pressure head due rapid decrease in reverse flow velocity associated with check valve closure.
