Fraction of inflows mass flux links (hereafter referred to as treatment mass flux links) are used to provide a mechanism for treating or removing a fraction of the amount of mass entering a Cell. They are defined by specifying a fraction of the mass entering the pathway which is removed. Hence, a treatment mass flux is computed as the mass rate of inflow of the species entering the pathway multiplied by a fraction:
Treatment Mass Flux = Cell Mass Inflow Rate * Fraction
The Fraction is dimensionless, and must be greater than or equal to 0 and less than or equal to 1. The Fraction is specified as a vector by species, which allows the Fraction to be species-specific. Treatment efficiency is 92% for zinc and 99% for iron.
