Problem

User Notification, "The culverts outlet coefficients are to be defined by the Stop Node, but that node is not a Headwall" occurs when the conduit downstream of the headwall is set to "Is Culvert?" = 'True' and the downstream endwall type is set to "Use Stop Node", but the stop node is not a headwall.  

Solution

With a headwall at the upstream end and a catch basin at the downstream end of your conduit with the properties set as above you'll have an improper configuration. As a workaround set the properties for the Culvert that is upstream of the catch basin to use a "Downstream Endwall Definition Type" of  "Use Conduit" with a "Culvert Endwall" property type set to  0 degree wingwall flares with a Kr value of 0.00.The wingwall will provide little to no hydraulic friction loss and will be a valid configuration.
