Short summary
In this study, we investigate numerically, using EPANET code, the leaks in a water distribution network (WDN). The old part of Casablanca (Morocco) is used as a case study. The first episode is based on a simulation of artificial leaks on the MATLAB platform using EPANET. The second was a real simulation of artificial leaks. The results obtained are compared with those of a real simulation of artificial leaks caused by the opening and closing of hydrants.
