How to Tell how Long Normal Flow is used in a Link in #InfoSWMM, H2OMap SWMM  w/ #SWMM5

Find the Fraction of Normal Flow Limited in the Flow Classification  Table and copy it to the Link Information Table - the value of FLM can then be Displayed in a Map using  the Map Display command.  In this small example, three links primarily used normal flow and one uses it for a short time. Normal flow only uses the Manning's equation and the link upstream depth, hydraulic radius and cross sectional area to compute the flow.
