Abstract: This paper analyses some tests carried out in a looped water distribution network (WDN) at the Water Engineering Laboratory of the University of Perugia. Specifically, the aim of such tests is to evaluate the effect of transients generated by a water consumption change, i. e., a complete and fast closure of a valve simulating an end-user maneuver. This end-user was located at the downstream end section of a service line placed in three different sections of the WDN. The tests allow examining the effect of the network topology and the location of the transient generation point.
