While network skeletonization can be carried out directly using the FACILITY MANAGER of Facility Manager of H2ONET ANALYZER , the H2ONET SKELETONIZERSKELETONIZER Skeletonizer effectively complements H2ONET SUITEONET Suite by providing added capabilities for network data reduction, merging, and trimming. For these two added applications, the H2ONET SKELETONIZER will automatically re-calculate and re-allocate demands at all affected junction node to preserve the total demand in the system. When trimming a pipe segment with a downstream dead end node, the demand at that node is automatically shifted to the pipe’s upstream node as shown in Figures 3a-b. Two methods are provided for automatically re-allocating nodal demands during a network reduction application. These include a distance-weighted approach (Figure 4a) and an evenly-distributed approach (Figure 4b).
