We are interested in flows on general networks and derive a kinetic equation describing general production, social or transportation networks. Corresponding macroscopic transport equations for large time and homogenized behavior are obtained and studied numerically. This work continues a recent discussion [Averaged kinetic models for flows on unstructured networks, Kinetic Related Models 4 (2011) 1081-1096] and provides additionally explicit equilibrium solutions, second-order macroscopic approximations as well as numerical simulations on a large scale homogenized network. &Copy; 2015 World Scientific Publishing Company.
