Network flow

I'm interested in network flow inormation, books, PC-programs and so on.

The purpose is to enable me to write a program that can solve network flow models in the ventilation area.

If you have any information, please e-mail me.

Many thanks!

Re: Network flow

I am looking for a PC Win NT program that can be used to predict water through network systems. Particulary I am interested in understanding how to calculate water flow through a system that has a 1-2" diameter pipe that has 5-13 water lines streaming from this main feed. Then the flows through each line meet at the outlet pipe which can be 1-2" in diameter. I have tried using the Hardy Cross iterative process with no success. Anyone have any information?? It would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Network flow
Have a look at the Water Resources Application Software at they may well have you want. I have never explored the site but they seem to have a lot of this sort of thing. Please post back if you find the site useful or not.
