Water Distribution

The analysis of integrated solutions to enhance the performnace of civil and agricolture water distribution network is becoming a crucial issue. The research group is developing algorithms to optimize the pressure distribution in the network improving:

  • user equality
  • water saving
  • energy saving

    Metaheuristic algorithms are applied to optimize pressure distribution, placing valves and reducing the leakages. Water shortage is becoming a real emergency due to climate change and population grouth. The enhancement of the performances of existing insfrastructure has become a necessity to face the new challenges.

    The concepts of digital twin, high frequency monitoring and remote operations are becoming the new standard for the management of a reliable and resilient network . The Fluidlab group proposes methodologies implieng innovative devices to improve network performance and enhance user experience in Civil and Agricolture fields.
