Continuous flow systems, Civil Engineering

Continuous Flow Systems:

Transport by road, rail, air or ships takes place in vehicles which move along a path at intervals. As against this, continuous flow systems are those where the flow is continuous and not at intervals. Pipelines and conveyors are typical examples. We will consider ropeways also in this category though the cars (or buckets) can travel continuously or intermittently as one desires.
