Abstract:

Three different transport optimization formulations, consisting of an objective function to be minimized and a set of constraints to be satisfied, are described below. These formulations are based on data from the system operated from 1997 to the present, and from input provided by the installation and the Army Corp of Engineers Seattle District collectively referred to herein as the Installation . Each formulation consists of a function to minimize subject to constraints. The Installation has expressed interest in achieving cleanup for both RDX and TNT. The current model indicates that a feasible solution exists for cleaning up both RDX and TNT within 20 years. The Installation has also expressed interest in determining the benefit of increasing the capacity of the treatment plant above the current capacity of 1300 gpm. Those two formulations address these interests of the Installation. For comparison purpose, a simpler objective function, minimizing mass remaining, is also constructed. The formulations are provided in detail in the following pages and can be summarized as follows Formulation 1 serves as baseline. The objective function is to minimize the cost subject to that 1 the current capacity of the treatment plant is held constant, 2 the cleanup is determined by both RDX and TNT within 20 years. Formulation 2 same as Formulation 1 but allows the capacity of the treatment plant to increase to a maximum of 1950 gpm. Formulation 3 same as Formulation 1 but the objective function is to minimize the total mass remaining RDX plus TNT in layer 1 within 20 years.
