Abstract

A Linear Programming technique is proposed to balance the flows in a network, matching flow measurements where available. Where necessary, a “leak-out” flow is invoked on a pipe section in order to achieve the balance. Usually, multiple solutions are possible, and these are sounded out by progressively increasing an integrity weight for each pipe ...
