Abstract: Multiobjective dynamic optimization has been carried out on a nonvaporizing nylon 6 batch reactor. Three objective functions have been identifled, viz., minimization of the conccntration of unreacted monomer in the product, minimization of the dimer concentration, and minimization of the reaction time, for producing polymer having a specified value, p n d , of the number average chain length. Two problems have been studied in this paper, each consisting of two objective functions taken from the above set. Par…
