Abstract


Controlling water losses through leakage in water supply systems is an important issue for
perfect water management. There are generous studies have been investigated, trying to get
close to the ideal design of water pipelines network system. Also perfect applicable of the
system in the field, as well as having a good management for the system for several years.
The existing paper may response about partial requests in that field. The purpose of this paper
is to investigate the effect of leakage that may occur in pipeline systems on the pressure and
velocity. Various factors, influencing water losses have been identified and investigated. The
dynamic behaviors that have been investigated in the paper were; the effect of the local
energy loss including leakages on the pressure, velocity or discharge in pipelines network,
and the effect of water pressure in pipelines on the leakage rate
