Water Supply

  1. Steady state modeling: Steady state modeling is the most basic and most frequently used type of modeling when dealing with water supply systems. Steady state modeling captures most data associated with a water supply system and hence requires a highly sophisticated and user friendly model development environment. Pipe2012 is undoubtedly the best of the model development environments available in the market with its highly intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) that lets the user create/modify network elements with just a couple or three mouse clicks. The package also includes several other sophisticated and time saving tools such as direct parameter calculation, calibration, fire hydrant analysis, rural water systems analysis, pump/system curve calculations etc. (visit www.kypipe.com/kypipe.htm for more details)

  2. Quasi steady state modeling (Extended Period Simulation):In addition to routine steady state analysis, users are also interested in the behavior of water distribution sysem components such as tanks and pumps under time varying demand and boundary conditions. Pipe2012 allows the users to perform these studies with ease. In fact the Pipe2012(KYPIPE) was the first one to introduce control switches for modeling automated controls based on SCADA.

  3. Water quality modeling: Pipe2012 provides a powerful and seem-less graphical user interface for the US EPA's water quality modeling program called EPANET. The users may effortlessly create a network model (or import an existing EPANET model), provide the minimum required information for water quality modeling, run water quality simulations, and process the results graphically or in tabulated text format.

  4. Hydraulic calibration: This module is probably the oldest (been used by thousands of engineers since 1994) calibration tool that was developed based on the sophisticated and powerful genetic algorithm technique and the highly stable KYPIPE hydraulic engine for large-scale models.

  5. Water quality calibration: This recent addition to Pipe2012 family of programs allows the users to calibrate the water quality models for bulk and wall decay coefficients. (visit www.kypipe.com/kypipe.htm for more details)

  6. Hydrant analysis: Pipe2012 offers excellent hydrant analysis capabilities where in the hydrant flow rates at 20psi pressure can be computed for a single hydrant, a group of hydrants, or all hydrants in the system, in a single run. In addition this tool also offers capabilities to calculate flushing velocity etc. (visit www.kypipe.com/kypipe.htm and click on hydrants tab for more details)
