Simulation modeling has evolved from a direct examination of operating policies into operational decision support systems, integrated multiple use expansion planning systems and special purpose model applications. The key elements required in all facets of these applications are versatility and flexibility to adapt to wide ranging water resource configurations and study objectives. An approach which offers considerable advantage in generic water resource simulation modeling is network flow theory. This paper briefly examines the concepts behind a generic network flow theory model known as Acres Reservoir Simulation Program (ARSP), and demonstrates its application through three case studies.
