Transportation networks have analogs with network processes in other systems, such as water networks, structures, and electrical networks. Some of the relationships are outlined below.

Fundamental Law | q = kv | P = ρgh | F=δ (mv)/ δ (T) | V=IR |

density (k) | Density (ρ) | Force (F) | Voltage (V) | |

velocity (v) | velocity (v) | velocity | Conductance (G) | |

Equilibrium Conditions | Wardrop (time equal on used pairs in parallel) | Sum of horizontal (and sum of vertical) forces on a structure = 0, sum of moments = 0. | Voltage drop across two components in parallel are equal |

## StructuresEdit

- F= force
- m = Mass
- a = acceleration
- T = Time

## TransportationEdit

- q = flow
- k = density
- v = velocity

## ElectricityEdit

- V= Voltage
- I = Current
- R = Resistance
- G = Conductance = 1 / Resistance

## WaterEdit

- P = hydrostatic pressure
- ρ = fluid density =mV = mass *volume
- g = acceleration due to gravity
- h = height
- c= constant
- A = area
