Abstract

Machine learning (ML) algorithms and techniques are in the main trend of water distribution networks modeling in the last two decades. This is due to the high capabilities of ML in simulating and analyzing complex nonlinear relationships between input variables and outputs, as in the failure processes of water systems. A multitude of researches was dedicated to assess the condition of water networks and develop failure prediction models using different ML techniques; however, a comprehensive critical review pertaining to this field is missing in the literature. This paper aims to address this major gap by presenting the state-of-the-art in ML-based deterioration modeling of urban water infrastructure. The mainstream of the current practice, highlighted in this paper covers a proliferation of ML and soft computing applications to forecast and model the pipeline risk of failure. First, the state-of-knowledge of ML-based deterioration modeling for urban water systems is revealed along with models' methodologies, contributions, drawbacks, comparisons, and critiques. Second, future research directions and challenges are recommended to assist the construction automation research community in setting a vibrant agenda for the upcoming years.
