I am trying to apply NodeXL package in water distribution network and trying to find out the number of indidual loops & total number of loops. In addition to that, I am playing with the groups data which can be formed in NodeXL with which to find out
the connectivity, specially a bridge connection with which two clusters are depend on the bridge either side. My main focus is to find out the bridge in the large network. Further to measure the connectvity of the network after failure the bridge (link/edge).
1) The individual loop means in a single network
If triangle A-B-C formed a loop by joining all the 3 vertices by 3 edges. Simillar like a square A-B-C-D with 4 vertices & edges
2) The total number of loops means in a single network
The loops wich can be formed by all the possible way including individual loops (might be possible from some edges from the triangle & some edges from the square or any other shape which can be overlaped with lots of combiantions) . Here, I do
not mean the loop i.e. edge is connected to a single vertices itself.
How can I explore these two issues with NodeXL: 1) The number of loops &
2) The bridge connection
