Sabbatical Experience at the University of Cape Town – Water distribution leakage detection and other research
I will discuss my experience at the University of Cape Town (UCT) during my sabbatical from January to July 2017 as a US Fulbright scholar. In collaboration with the water distribution team at UCT, previously developed methods at NCSU for leakage detection in water distribution systems were extended to include more realistic leakage models as well as model and data errors. The methods were validated for a district metering area in the city of Cape Town. I also worked with the urban water management group at UCT in examining groundwater pumping schemes for extracting infiltrated stormwater for a study area in Cape Town.
