Abstract

The main objective of this paper is to introduce an emerging theory of vulnerability of water pipe networks and, in particular, its theoretical concepts. It is based on the form of a network and follows a systems approach. The application of the theory is presented using an example of a simple water pipe network. The fundamental contribution of this theory is to enable the design of water pipes networks that are more robust. It can also be used to achieve a more efficient management of water supply systems.
