AbstractThis paper reports on the initial simulation phase of a study that aims to assess the applicability and effectiveness of inverse transient analysis to the detection of leaks in real water distribution systems. Simulation was conducted and field tests are planned for a selected area of the City of Regina?s municipal water distribution network. Scenarios of various transient severity and leak sizes were simulated. Insight gained from the simulation provided a preliminary assessment of the effectiveness and feasibility of using the inverse transient analysis method for leak detection.
