Title: MONITORING FLUID DYNAMICS
Abstract:
There is provided a method and an apparatus analysing the condition of a liquid conduit system. Data is received from at least one sensor indicative of pressure within the system and then processed to generate an inflexion coded data subset for each sensor. The inflexion coded data is then cycle counted across at least one time period to generate a second data subset for each time period comprising a count of pressure cycles, the amplitude of these pressure cycles and an average pressure. A cumulative pressure- induced stress can then be calculated for each of the at least one time periods using the second data subset.
