The authors explain how one new development, sponsored by Thames Water, is helping it in the battle to locate leaks more quickly and reliably. From the outset their aim was to develop a `virtual' instrument approach based on a standard personal computer (PC). In this way, as the knowledge base increases and further improvement...
