Upgrade Of The Hydraulics Laboratory For The Modeling Of Water Supply Networks & Design And Operation Optimization Study (Inrfrastucure)
In the context of this proposal for upgrading existing laboratory/technological equipment, the Cyprus University of Technology together with a strong Research Consortium propose the development of a State of the Art Laboratory for Hydrodynamics/Hydraulics Applications which is a prerequisite for the execution of the proposed Research Project on the optimization study for the design and operation – through computational and experimental simulation – of water supply networks. The Project aims to satisfy the dire need for authorities to solve the extremely serious problem of water supply as a result of continued water shortage. The grave and chronic problems of water losses in the water supply network pipes, the uncontrolled and non-optimum operation of pumping stations, the often wrong design of the networks because of various interventions (e.g. town planning, wrong mapping of existing networks), are some of the most important problems which need to be tackled in order to optimize the performance of the networks and, consequently, save on this precious resource, as well as, on the energy consumed.
