Linear programming as a method for optimization of ceramic processes

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


An integrated method for modeling ceramic processes has been developed that incorporates traditional reformulation techniques for ceramic bodies with a new algorithm that models processes as a group of interacting linear elements. Linear programming concepts are used in the computer-assisted calculations. Input for the technique consists of property specifications and key characteristics of available raw materials and process parameters. The program algorithm varies these values in a way that optimizes the product and process according to predefined constraints.
