Optimal reliability based design for water distribution systems

M. J. Cullinana, K. E. Lansey, Larry Mays

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The methodology presented in this paper explicitly includes availability measures that incorporate both mechanical and hydraulic unavailability of system components for a dynamic system. The methodology incorporates availability measures in the optimal design model WADSOPT developed by Lansey and Mays (1987) to produce a new model WSAVOPT (Cullinane 1989), which determines optimal-reliable designs.
