Graduate students Jorge Pesantez, Mohammad Ali Khaksar Fassae, and Faisal Alghamadi, together with faculty Dr. Emily Berglund and Dr. Kumar Mahinthakumar recently participated in a worldwide competition called “BattLe of Leakage Detection and Isolation Methods: BattLeDIM 2020” (https://battledim.ucy.ac.cy/). NC State graduate students and faculty teamed up with researchers from TU Berlin, and the group collaborated to create a new computational model to find leaks in a water pipe network using measurements of pressure, flowrate, and demand. A total of 18 teams from industry and universities across the globe competed in BattLeDIM on September 3, 2020. Our NC State-TU Berlin team was awarded third place for the solution that they submitted, which accurately found 18 leaks in a water distribution system. Congratulations to our team!
