The purpose of this thesis was to develop and demonstrate methods for determining the criticality of elements in networks. The impact failures could have on the network performance was its primary focus. A second objective was to determine whether the developed method could be applied successfully based on network characteristics. To achieve these goals, research was conducted on factors that influence the criticality of an element, on the possibilities of applying simplified hydrodynamic processes in the determination of criticality and on the contribution of different model components to the functioning of water network models.
