Abstract

Much importance is given to determining the input data for water distribution system networks, particularly with regard to urbannetworks, because the design and the management of WDS are based on a verification model. Good calibration of models isrequired to obtain realistic results. This is possible by the use of a certain number of measurements: flow in pipes and pressure innodes. The purpose of this paper is to analyze a new model able to provide guidance on the choice of measurement points to obtainthe site data. All analyses are carried out firstly on literature networks and then on a real network using a new approach based onsensitivity matrices.
