4.2 Methods for Solving Flow Problems

Inspection

  • In small flow networks, it may be possible to determine the maximum flow.
  • Remember that flow networks show the capacity of each edge. The maximum flow for an edge is often limited by the capacity of other edges. For example, if a pipe capable of carrying 100L/h is attached to one only capable of 50L/h, the maximum flow through the 100L/h pipe will be limited to 50L/h.
