Overview:

Transfers are direct water connections from a reservoir or node to another reservoir or node. Transfers are instantaneous movements of water (and its constituents and particles) without any detailed description of physics or storage. The Transfer View specifies the connectivity of the transfer. A time series must also be listed in the Transfer Time Series View to specify the flow -- the default is zero.


Tables:

TRANSFER

The Transfer table defines the name and connectivity of the transfer. The flow is a time series input specified in TRANSFER_TIME_SERIES

Field Descriptions

NAME
Name of the transfer. This is the identifier of the transfer used in other GUI views.
FROM_OBJ
Type (node or reservoir) of the source object.
FROM_IDENTIFIER
Identifier (node number or reservoir name) of the source destination object.
TO_OBJ
Type (node or reservoir) of the destination object.
TO_IDENTIFIER
Identifier (node number or reservoir name) of the destination object.

Usage Notes:

  • In previous versions of DSM2, Transfers were called "obj2obj".
  • To complete the specification of a Transfer, a time series or constant flow must be attached to it in the Transfer Time Series table.
