The MineWater programme is designed to analyze the flow of mine discharges through complex piping networks. The programme can be used to evaluate the effects of alternate pumps, pipe sizes and flow routings in existing or proposed discharge systems.
Currently the program generates a static solution showing flow rates through pipes, and pressures at pipe junctions (calculated using the Hazen-Williams headloss formula) for a fixed input condition. Ultimately the program will generate simulations of a system over time, allowing for control sequences such as the starting and/or stopping of pumps under specified conditions or at specific times.
