• Whentheeffectiverateisnotthesameastheconstraining(maximum)rate,thetwonumbers are represented as effective rate/constraining rate above the icon. If the two rates are the same, only one number appears.
• IftheValveislimitingandtheeffectiverateisgreaterthan0,theinterioroftheiconisplain blue. If the Valve is limiting to 0, the interior of the icon is plain red. If the Valve is not lim- iting, the interior of the icon is white.
• When the effective rate is greater than 0, a blue rectangle appears along the icon, and the rates are written in blue. When there is no flow, the blue rectangle does not appear on the icon and the rates are written in red.
Also displaying blocking and starving status
If the option Valve animates and reports blocking and starving information is selected in the Executive block’s Discrete Rate tab, Valves will also animate their blocking and starving status information.

Limiting, blocked, and starved and no flow
If a Valve is blocked, it means that there are one or more blocks downstream which are limiting the flow through the Valve. If a Valve is starved, it means there are one or more upstream blocks that limit the flow to the Valve.
• Ifthereisnoflow,therewillnotbeahorizontallinethroughtheValve.Ifthereisflow,and the Valve is non-limiting, the horizontal line through the Valve is a patterned blue. The hori- zontal line is a plain blue color if there is flow.
