Current research focussed on the behaviour of leaks in water pipelines. The areas of leak openings vary with pressure in ways that are characteristic of the pipe and leak properties. We have characterised the behaviour of different types of leaks and have incorporated this knowledge into realistic simulation models for leakage. We have also development devices that can characterise the condition of pipe infrastructure. These devices can be used to find leaks and collect information on the condition of pipe infrastructure.
