Motion or Movement patterns of vehicles communicating wirelessly play a important role in the simulation based evaluation of Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks (VANETs). It is to know that recent research about mobility modeling has given direction for vehicular network study still to obtain realistic behavior of vehicles; developments in this area are required in detail level. In this paper, one of the main mobility modeling approach is discussed to the extent that it can help to understand models formulation and integr0ation strategies with network simulators. This approach is called as flow mobility modeling. It is put into the discussion and elaborated in such way it clarifies basics of flow modeling and its impact. It also finds a different ways of modeling and implementation into existing traffic simulators viz. SUMO, VISSIM etc. Flow of vehicle is a key aspect of flow modeling which is often used in VANET‘s simulation.
