Effect of Pipe Friction on Nodal Pressure of Water Distribution System

Suniti Kumari | Rajneesh Singh [2] | Dr. Vishnu Prasad


Abstract: Water Distribution System, a hydraulic infrastructure that consists of elements such as Pipe, Node, Reservoir, Tank, Pump and valves. An effective Water Supply System is paramount to deliver good quality of water at a considerable pressure to the consumer?s end. Using computation technique to Simulate the Water Distribution System has progressed to a mature stage of development. The EPANET Software is used to design and analyze the hydraulics and water quality parameter of Water Distribution Network. EPANET 2.2 monitors the flow of water in each pipe as well as Pressure at each node. The friction factor, which affects the head loss in pipe, has a direct effect on the nodal pressure. So, the effect of friction coefficient on nodal pressure is studied. It will help to select the proper pipe material and to optimize the network cost. This work highlights the study on effect of pipe friction on Nodal pressure of Pipe Network System. The analysis carried on the basis of varying friction factor and the critical nodes are identified for different size of pipe in network system. This Study is intended to give the information about minimum desired pressure at each node and to check the reliability.
