Many techniques of leak detection in pipeline systems have developed based on the propagation wave speeds and wave attenuation. In this paper, the transient analysis methodology is used for calculating the wave speed in the plastic pipe and a frequency analysis methodology is developed for leakage detection in water pipe networks. Data acquisition system for pressurized pipeline system were designed md fabricated to obtain high frequency pressure data. The methodology properly handles the unavoidable uncertainties in measurement and modeling error. Based on information from head pressure test data, it provides leak prediction capability from the transient events with leakage.

유체의 파속과 파형을 이용한 많은 누수탐지 기술들이 연구되고 있다. 본 연구에서는 파속을 계산하기 위해 천이류 방법을 이용하였고 누수지점의 탐지를 위해 주파수 분석방법을 개발하였다. 가압관망의 자료획득 시스템을 개발하였으며, 이를 통해 고주파 수압자료를 획득하였다. 이들 방법론은 측정과 모의 과정에서 발생되는 오차로 인한 불화실성을 적절히 처리할 수 있으며, 수압자료의 측정간을 근거로 누수의 예측지점을 추정할 수 있다. 본 연구에서 개발된 방법은 수압자료로부터 확보되는 정보를 기반으로, 누수가 동반된 천이현상에서 누수예측능력을 보여주고 있다.
