gasnet.gms : Optimal Design of a Gas Transmission Network

Description

A gas pipeline is to be designed to transport a fixed amount of gas from
one point to two others. Both, the initial and final stages of the gas
are known. We need to determine:

  Number of compressor stations
  Length of the pipeline segments
  Diameter of pipeline segments
  Suction and discharge pressures at each stations
