This is a sample WaterNAM model which has been described in the user’s manual.
With application of a 24-hour diurnal pattern, the system response is evaluated for the network of Example 1.
Network responses have been evaluated for Needed Fire-Flow (NFF) and at a minimum residual pressure. Three hydrant nodes have been analyzed for fire-flow in the model.
A small diameter water main has been redesigned to support a new residential facility with an average day demand (ADD) of 150 GPM.
Pressure zone of a small segment has been separated by introducing a Pressure Reducing Valve (PRV) in the network. Then the system response is evaluated.
The network has been analyzed for optimizing an OHT operation which floats in the system.
In this example, chlorination process has been analyzed in distributed water throughout the network, which is the most frequent treatment technique.
The network has been analyzed to trace contribution from a temporary groundwater source to the target location.
This example demonstrates water age simulation, thereby determines the amount of time spent by water at different locations after entering from the source.
This example demonstrates energy-cost analysis for a pump-operated distribution network, thereby finds optimum pumping schedule.
