In Chemical Engineering, several thermodynamic calculations can be formulated as optimization problems with or without restrictions. As indicated by Henderson et al. [1] the formulation of thermodynamic calculations for optimization problems offers some advantages: a) the use of a robust optimization method, b) the possibility of using a direct optimization method which requires only calculations of the objective function and c) the use of an iterative procedure whose convergence is almost… CONTINUE READING
