An outline of a method for constructing maximal dynamic flow from static flow and a presentation of a simple proof of maximality. It is assumed that for a given network of nodes and arcs (e.g., a railway system) each arc has associated with it two positive integers. These integers consist of a commodity-flow capacity and a commodity-traversal time.
