Abstract
Pipe leaks detection has a great economic, environmental and safety impact. Although several methods have been developed to solve the leak detection problem, some drawbacks such as continuous monitoring and robustness should be addressed yet. Thus, this paper presents the main results of using a leaks detection and classification methodology, which takes advantage of piezodiagnostics principle. It consists of: i) transmitting/ sensing guided waves along the pipe surface by means of piezoelectric...
