Abstract

The management of Water Distribution Systems (WDS) is strictly connected to the emergency conditions. Critical events can cause the inefficiency of the network, so the head in some nodes could be inadequate to guarantee the service for the users. In this paper, a methodology aimed to improve the demand at critical nodes during the emergency conditions is proposed, according to the flow management. In particular, the model used, INetPDA, performs a Pressure Driven Analysis (PDA) based approach. Twocase studies prove that the approach is effective according to the results obtained.
