    Article summary

    Pump and Flow-Regulator (Orifice, Weir and Outlet) links are used to connect the nodes in an urban network. They allow the flow to be conveyed between their inlet and outlet nodes in alternative ways to the Urban Conduit Link.

    In Kinematic Wave routing, these link types are only allowed as the outflow link from an Urban Storage Node.

    Pumps

    A Pump is a link that lifts water between nodes. We refer the user to the EPA Manual for further details on the Pump link type.


    Flow-Regulator links

    Orifice and Weir links represent these features within an urban system, and convey flow using the orifice and weir equations respectively.

    An Outlet link is used to specify flow not represented by a pump, orifice or weir.

    We refer the user to the EPA Manual for further details on each link type, including the equations used.
