A simple question: how to model junctions in WEAP?

Dear Kasra,

Do you mean river junctions? You can make one river flow into another by building the river (start with the headflow) and ending with a double click in an existing river.

Dear Stephanie,

Thanks for your note. Imagine there are 2 diversion channels which should come to a point and then 3 diversion channels go out from that point. In other words, a node for which this mass balance equation holds: mass of incoming water = mass of outgoing water.

Hi Kasra,

If you have two sources of water that are joining together, you can model them as river tributaries (two rivers). If you have a source of water that is splitting apart, you can model it as a river and a diversion (or multiple diversions).
