This article summarizes a new method for the capacity design of pipe networks using digital computers. The method is based on successive iteration technique. The input data and output results of the computer program are simplified to enable wide uses of the program. A sub-program is attached to the main one to provide an automatic graphical output of the design, hence reducing the engineers efforts in examining and drawing the results, and at the same time minimizing human errors. This sub-program is optional. The units used with the program can be metric or British, a parameter is introduced to take care of. throughout the analysis. this choice.
