The flow source is used to create flow or bulk material for a model.
The source generates material at a continuous flow rate that can be set in the properties window, or changed dynamically during the model run.
The source uses the standard events that are common to almost all FloWorks objects. See
for an explanation of these events.
Note that the source only provides flow output so all events and properties that are related to the input flow,
such as the On Input trigger, are not available for this object.
For statistical purposes, the source's FloWorks state profile will be in one of the following
states at various points during a simulation run:
Idle - The source is not releasing any flow. This may be because its own output is closed, downstream objects are blocking, or the maximum outflow rate is set to zero.
Generating - The source is generating flow and releasing it downstream.
The source object has five tabs with various properties. The first three tabs are standard tabs
that are common to all flow objects. For more information about the properties on these tabs, see:
