abstract

When a lifeline system such as a water delivery network is damaged due to a severe earthquake, it is critical to identify its location and extent of the damage in real time in order to minimize the potentially disastrous consequence such damage could otherwise entail. This paper demonstrates how the degree of such minimization can be estimated qualitatively by using the water delivery system of Irvine Water Ranch District (IRWD) as testbed, when it is subjected to magnitude 6.6 San Joaquin Hills Earthquake. In this demonstration, we consider two cases when the IRWD system is equipped or not equipped with a next generation SCADA which consists of a network of MEMS acceleration sensors densely populated and optimally located. These sensors are capable of identifying the location and extent of the damage as well as transmitting the data to the SCADA center for monitoring and control.
