The author has developed a general computer program OPNET to be used in the optimal design of hydraulic networks. The computer program can be used to optimize three basic variables; tank elevation, pump head, and discrete pipe diameter sizes. A modified Box Complex optimization technique is used to minimize a nonlinear objective function while the linear method of hydraulic analysis is used in the evaluation of the network system constraints.
