i dont know the exact definition but i would sat that a bottleneck is like sumit that limits the capacity of the flow through that arc, hence thats why a network can have a maximum flow.

I agree... imagine having a street that can only hold 10 cars, and there is no other way to get where you want to go, other than using this street. No matter how hard you try (planes not allowed) you will not have a flow of more than 10 cars in that street at any instant, even if you have a motorway before and after which has a large capacity.

That street is preventing additional flow in your network. It is "bottlenecking" your network.

Hope it helps...
