Abstract
We propose to develop a physics based, high accuracy and easy to use software for the fate and transport analysis of chemical and biological agents and contaminants in drinking water distribution systems. A recently developed BlazeTech software called H2OFate1.0 will be used as the platform for this development. The software developed here will have physics based models for hydraulics, water quality and contaminant fate and transport in addition to vulnerability analysis and source inversion. Each of these models will be developed building on modules and algorithms that we developed in the past in various projects/applications. The software will be equipped with an easy to use Graphical User Interface and data visualization tools to facilitate simulations. We plan to carry out detailed testing, verification and validation of the software in Phase II. Deliverables at the end of Phase II include the software, documentation, and a final report.
