Agg Distribution Canal Water Quality
Agg Distribution Canals have water quality methods to model salt by calculating the total salt mass of the inflow and outflow. The actual water quality work is done on the Distribution Canal elements. Links are automatically created between Distribution Canals within the aggregate.
The Distribution Canal can currently model salt.
User Methods
The following section describes the user-selectable methods for water quality modeling on the Agg Distribution Canal.
Note:  These methods control the method on the member elements.
Agg Distribution Canal Water Quality
The methods in this category add the necessary slots to the element. They also control the method selection on the member Distribution Canals.
* None
No water quality solution is performed. No slots are added.
* Propagate Salt
Following are the slots added to the
Inflow Salt Concentration
Type: Series Slot
Units: Concentration
Description: Salt concentration associated with the inflow to the Agg Distribution Canal
I/O: Input, set by a rule, output or propagated via a link
Inflow Salt Mass
Type: Series Slot
Units: Mass
Description: Salt mass associated with the inflow to the Agg Distribution Canal
I/O: Output only
Outflow Salt Concentration
Type: Series Slot
Units: Concentration
Description: Salt concentration associated with the outflow from the Agg Distribution Canal
I/O: Input, set by a rule, output or propagated via a link
Outflow Salt Mass
Type: Series Slot
Units: Mass
Description: Salt mass associated with the outflow from the Agg Distribution Canal
I/O: Output Only
Dispatch Methods
Following are the available dispatch method when Propagate Salt is selected.
* Solve Salt Mass
This method computes the total inflow and outflow salt mass only. The salt concentrations should come from the linked element objects or from upstream/downstream objects (or via input or rules).
Required Known slots
• Total Inflow
• Total Outflow
• Inflow Salt Concentration
• Outflow Salt Concentration
Required Unknown slots
• Inflow Salt Mass
• Outflow Salt Mass
This method does the following:
