Short summary
In this research, reliability indicators of water distribution networks are evaluated under pipe failure conditions. The case studies include two benchmark and one real-life water distribution networks in Iran with more hydraulic constraints. Some important reliability indicators are presented, such as resilience index, network resilience, modified resilience index, and minimum surplus head index.
