For  any  such physical network the flow  coming  into  any intermediate node needs  to equal the flow going  out of that node. Bollobas characterizes  this  constraint  in term of  Kirchhoff current law.

Transportation models  being  investigated predominantly in the  defence sector. It is also  seeing  application  in such  field  as national air and auto transportation  and space exploration.

Other  applications where it can  be applied  include  health care design  of the internet and software integration.
