Managing Seasonal Variations in Leakage
ISBN: 1 84057 460 7
This project has improved the understanding of the range of seasonal variations in leakage around the UK and identified some of the underlying factors and the mechanisms. The study concluded that seasonal variations in leakage are common during the winter and characterised by an increase in leakage and bursts. Analysis and modelling suggests seasonal variations in leakage appear to be a function of the pipe temperature compared to its temperature during installation, variable ground support and movement and the degree of ground saturation. A number of recommendations have been made in the report to enable companies to manage seasonal variations in leakage.
