SWQN is a simplified hydraulic model for surface water systems which computes water levels and flows in a network of nodes labelled as ‘volumes’ and segments labelled as ‘connectors’. The user can specify a variety of connectors like open water courses or structures such as weirs, gates, culverts or pumps. Water levels are calculated in the ‘volumes’ driving the one dimensional flows through the ‘connectors’ linking up the ‘volumes’. The assumption is that the flow between two nodes with an open connection in between is linearly dependent on the difference in water level, if necessary augmented with the difference in velocity head, the wetted profile, and a given resistance.
