The Naples Research Unit project will work to achieve two different goals.

Objective 1 – Problem of the "optimal design" of Water Distribution Systems

The first goal of the research is the development of a methodology capable of solving the problem of the "optimal design of water distribution network", by considering as economical as reliability aspects. The problem of the stochastic Water Distribution System (WDS) design will take into account solving an optimization problem.

The model will be able to search an objective function for either one of these cases:

- minimization of the installation and operating costs (appropriately capitalized) for a given level of system reliability;

- maximization of system reliability for a given value of installation and operating costs, intended as the capability (in probabilistic terms) to ensure the random quantity of water required by the consumers by imposing minimum head constraints.
