Bentley Systems' Pipe Renewal Planner ranks the worst-performing pipes in a network
Bentley Systems' Pipe Renewal Planner is a decision support tool that is designed to provide water utility owner-operators with a quantifiable and reproducible best practice for optimizing the replacement and rehabilitation of distribution network pipes. Pipe Renewal Planner is engineered to rank the worst-performing pipes in the network, helping owner-operators prioritize network upgrades.
The module helps engineers identify pipes that should be considered for renewal by ranking the worst-performing pipes based on their year of installation, materials of construction, pipe break history and hydraulic performance under various constraints. The latter is accurately assessed using pipe break, fire flow capacity and criticality analyses.
