Abstract

Entropy as a surrogate measure for the reliability of water distribution systems (WDS) has been investigated for some time. It has the computational advantages of being easy to calculate, minimal data requirements and ease of incorporation into optimisation procedures. Reliability, on the other hand, is very computationally demanding. Based on this argument, the possible use of entropy as an indicator of reliability is very desirable.
