A general methodology is presented for use in the design of water distribution networks. The proposed approach is conceptually useful for certain applications. The approach is based on recasting the basic set of hydraulic network equations in terms of selected design parameters for specified operating conditions. The reformulated, network equations are then solved using a modified linear method. In order to demonstrate the feasibility of the approach, two different algorithms are developed and applied to an example network.
