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…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
