The basis for and field trials of two leak detection algorithms by transient flow simulations are presented. Data noise in pressure and flow measurements are considered. Noise is found to limit leak detectability. The ability of the two algorithms to reliably detect small to moderate size leaks under steady and transient flow conditions is demonstrated.
