Boundary Flows are boundary conditions at nodes where flow is known. This view defines these time series and assigns time series data to them.



The Boundary Flow table defines flow boundary conditions by giving them names and associating them with a node. The table also assigns a time series to the boundary condition. Boundary Flow is a top-level layered table.

Field Descriptions

Name assigned to the source. This is the identifier of the boundary and is referred to elsewhere in the input system. If you assign water quality you will use the same name in order to match concentration to flow.
Node number at which the source is applied.
Forces the time series to be a source or a sink. Positive values are normally associated with a source, but the data (especially sinks such as agricultural diversions) are sometimes measured in absolute flow. Use 1 to force the value to be a positive source or -1 to interpret values as a sink.
Method for filling in data if the time step of the assigned series is coarser than the time step of the model. See fillin types
DSS or text file in which data are stored. Use consistent case when referring to the same file. You may also enter the word constant if you would like to assign a constant value to the input (the value will be entered in the next column).
The path within the text or DSS file of the time series data. If you used the constant keyword in the Input File column, enter the value (e.g. 4.22) here.
