Leak detection by inverse transient analysis in an experimental PVC pipe system
(IWA PUBLISHING, 2011)
Leakage reduction in water supply systems and distribution networks has been an increasingly important issue in the water industry since leaks and ruptures result in major physical and economic losses. Hydraulic transient ...
Analysis of PVC pipe-wall viscoelasticity during water hammer
(ASCE-AMER SOC CIVIL ENGINEERS, 2008)
This research work focuses on the analysis of hydraulic transients in polyvinyl chloride (PVC) pipes, which are characterized by a viscoelastic rheological behavior. Transient pressure data were collected in a pipe rig ...
