(:title Limestone Slurry Pipeline Optimization Problem:)
(:keywords mining, slurry, pipeline, nonlinear, optimization, engineering optimization, two-bar optimization, engineering design, interior point, active set, differential, algebraic, modeling language, university course:)
(:description Engineering design and optimization of a heat pump system for pasteurization of milk. Optimization principles are used to design the system.:)

Design a pipeline for transporting crushed limestone from a quarry to a terminal located some distance away, using water as a transporting medium.

The limestone is crushed at the quarry, mixed with water to form a slurry, and pumped through the pipe.  We would like to minimize the operating cost, which is primarily determined by the grinding power and the pumping power.
 

This problem is taken from James Siddall, Optimal Engineering Design, Dekker.
