Abstract

An MS Excel tool for teaching hydraulic analysis of water distribution networks (WDNs) was developed. The tool is able to perform both steady-state and extended period simulations of a WDN. The tool does not require installation and offers a portable solution to WDN design problem in undergraduate environmental engineering studies.
