Comments on “Bayesian Update and Method of Distributions: Application to Leak Detection in Transmission Mains” by Alawadhi and Tartakovsky

Abstract In a recent paper (Alawadhi and Tartakovsky, 2020), Alawadhi and Tartakovsky proposed an interesting, novel, efficient and potentially powerful Bayesian‐based approach to cope with the uncertainty in initial ow velocity when using transient waves to detect leaks in pressurized pipes. In this discussion, we illustrate that the uncertainty in initial ow velocity has negligible […]
