Results of PGTF - Project INT/01/K05

INT/01/K05 - Distributed Modeling of Pipeline Networks

Submitter: Jordan University of Science and Technology
Subcontractor: same as above
Priority area: Technology
Participating/beneficiary countries: 3 countries (Jordan, Turkey, and United Arab Emirates)
PGTF input (US$): US$80,000
Other inputs (US$): US$80,000
Date of implementation: 2002-2003
Impact: Initial work was performed on the design and evaluation of a concurrent system for modeling pipe networks using linear algebraic methods based on cluster computing that could offer a low-cost and high-speed alternative to traditional and expensive solutions based on massively parallel processing systems. The modeling of complex and large dynamic pipe networks poses a major challenge to be addressed.
