Water System Demand Curves in AF

Does anyone have experience creating demand curves for a water system using mass balance in asset framework? I'm particularly interested in the methodology of the mass balance vis a vis sampling times and calculation methods. Presently, I'm calculating the volume change using the following configuration:

  • Analyses to average flow rate from inflows and outflows over a 15 minute interval sampled periodically every 5 minutes
  • Analyses that sum child attributes to the level of a pressure zone sampled periodically every 5 minutes (avoiding rollups that can't be backfilled)
  • A final analysis at the pressure zone level that performs the mass balance sampled periodically every 5 minutes


I'm hoping to begin a discussion on what works well for others and
