Optimization for Chemical Engineers

McMaster University Course , Spring 2015 , Prof. Kevin Dunn

286 students enrolled

Overview

The application of optimization methods to important engineering problems in thermodynamics, statistics, design, control, economics and scheduling. The course will emphasize problem definition, model formulation and solution analysis, with sufficient details on existing algorithms and software to solve problems.

Topics covered in these lessons includes:

  1. Introduction to Optimization concepts
  2. Creating mathematical models
  3. Linear programming (LPs): formulation and interpretation of the solution
  4. Mixed Integer Linear Programming (MILPs)
  5. Nonlinear Programming (NLPs) with a single variable (unconstrained)
  6. Nonlinear Programming (NLPs) with multi variables (unconstrained)
  7. Nonlinear Programming (NLPs) adding constraints
  8. Optimization in Industrial Practice
