International audience; This chapter summarizes the one-dimensional modeling of transients in a pipeline, commonly used for detection and location of faults (such as leaks and obstructions) by means of model-based methods. The modeling starts with the discretization via finite-difference method of classical water hammer equations. The result of such a discretization is a system of ordinary differential equations, which is considered together with boundary conditions that represent faults and pipeline accessories. Some illustrative results are finally given based on a test bench.
