Limestone Slurry Pipeline Design Problem
Introduction
The objective of this project is to optimize the design of a pipeline for transporting
crushed limestone from a limestone quarry to a supply station located a distance away
from the quarry, as shown in
Spring Design Problem
A helical compression spring, made of music wire, has preload length of 3.5 inches. The
spring is to operate an indefinite number of times through a deflection of 0.75 inches
with the free length of the spring is 4.125 inches. We wis

Nonlinear Programming
In previous chapters, we have studied linear programming problems. For an LP, our goal was
to maximize or minimize a linear function subject to linear constraints. But in many interesting
