The 'Solver' algorithm, developed as an outgrowth of work on cost allocation in water distribution systems, is a simple technique that solves a number of interesting problems in water distribution system analysis. Problems related to mixing water from different sources within the distribution network, travel time from any source to any node of the network, and development of the cost of service to any node in the network can be solved assuming steady-state conditions, given a prior solution of the hydraulics (flow in each link) of the network. All these problems are formulated as the solution of simultaneous linear equations. The Solver algorithm has been coded in Fortran and incorporated within the structure of a multi-purpose system of computer programs that allows for the storage, display and manipulation of data associated with node-link networks describing water distribution systems. These programs are identified by the name Water Supply Simulation Model.
