Implicit network calibration

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

126 Scopus citations


An implicit mathematical model is developed for use in calibrating hydraulic network models. The calibration model uses a nonlinear optimization algorithm along with a general network solver to adjust selected model parameters for either steady state or dynamic operating conditions. Adjustable model parameters include: pipe roughness, source grades, and nodal demands. Both a steady state and an extended period calibration example are presented.
