One of the first steps in water distribution systems (WDSs) design process is the pipeline routing, defined as geometrical projection of a designed network. The analogical step can also be found in designing of other elements of technical infrastructure, such as energy lines or roads. Moreover, the pipeline routing process influences pipe’s sizing and determinates investment, exploitation and maintenance aspects of the whole WDS. Despite its significant meaning, the routing process is still unsatisfactorily supported by mathematical methods and computer aided tools. Therefore, there are continuous researches of more effective pipeline routing and sizing methods. This paper presents a literature review about currently developed methods of network routing and methods of optimal pipeline sizing.
