Department of Drinking Water and Sanitation, Ministry of Rural Development, Government of India along with the Water and Sanitation Program (WSP) of World Bank have prepared a comprehensive O&M manual for rural water supply.
Flumes are shaped, open-channel flow sections in which flow is accelerated by converging the sidewalls, raising the bottom, or a combination of both. When only the bottom is raised with no side contractions, the flume is commonly called a broad-crested weir. When the downstream depth is shallow and enough convergence exists between the upstream and read more

LOOP software for hydraulic modelling of pressurised looped networks for water supply distribution. The software was written in an attempt to help developing countries to plan and design water distribution systems that are better suited to their needs. The development was supported financially by the World Bank and the UNDP Inter-regional Project. LOOP 4.0 can read more
