    Abstract

    Network models are an essential tool that allows for in-depth inspection of a water distribution system "a hydraulic model capable of accounting for pressure-driven demand and leakage flow at pipe level should prove invaluable" (Giustolisi et al, 2008, p. 7), whether it be real time or a simulated model the efficiency of a real world system relies on this. However, the systems in place in crude networks often report false positnves or can't detect the difference between a true burst and an unnatural flow rate. The method investigated will try optimise leak detection with minimal cost invested so that this system may be universally adopted.
