Abstract

This article presents a mathematical model for the synthesis of resource conservation networks with interception placement. A comprehensive superstructure that incorporates all possible network configurations is used to facilitate the formulation. The synthesis task involves the allocation and interception of process sources to satisfy process sinks and environmental constraints. In particular, the interaction between the sinks and sources is addressed as the subject of the present study. Two literature case studies are solved to illustrate the proposed approach.
