Gas-Diversion Detection Techniques using Guided Wave Ultrasonic Testing

Detection of natural gas diversion in residential pipelines is important for public safety. To maintain utilities companies’ reputation and customer satisfaction, such diversion must be detected in a nonintrusive manner, without digging or using endoscope cameras. Thus, it is important to develop techniques for residential gas pipeline diagnosis using an external small device that can detect a diversion if it exists, and determine its location. The goal of this project is to develop non-intrusive diversion detection and localization techniques using ultrasound signals and signal processing.
