Title: Optimisation of water distribution systems using genetic algorithms for hydraulic and water quality issues / by Christopher Michael Hewitson
Author: Hewitson, Christopher Michael
Issue Date: 1999
School/Discipline: Dept. of Civil and Environmental Engineering
Abstract: Develops a framework balancing water quality costs resulting from waterborne disease, disinfection by-product exposure and aesthetic concerns, against hydraulic costs, which include pipes, pumps and tanks. The genetic algorithms developed, successfully obtained the current optimal hydraulic solution, before adapting the model to incorporate water quality issues.
