Formulate a Linear Program for Blend Mix at Bluegrass Distillery

The Bluegrass Distillery produces custom-blended whiskey. A particular blend consists of rye and bourbon whiskey. The company has received an order for a minimum of 400 gallons of the custom blend. The customer specified that the order must contain at least 40% rye and not more than 250 gallons of bourbom. The customer also specified that the blend should be mixed in the ratio of two parts of bourbon. The distillery can produce 500 gallons per week regardless of the blend. The production manager wants to complete the order in one week. The blend is sold for \$5 per gallon.

The distillery company's cost per gallon is \$2 for rye and \$1 for bourbon. The company wants to determine the blend mix that will meet customer requirements and maximize profits. Formulate a linear programming model for this problem.

#### Temperature and velocity of the air-adiabatic nozzle

Air at 200 kPa and 950 K enters an adiabatic nozzle at low velocity and is discharged at a pressure of 80 kPa. If the isentropic efficiency of the nozzle is 92%, determine the temperature and velocity of the air at the exit.

#### Four-lane urban freeway

A four-lane urban freeway (two lanes in each direction) is located on rolling terrain and has 12-ft lanes, no lateral obstructions within 6 ft of the pavement edges, and an interchange every 2 miles.

#### Superelevation rate for a roadway

What superelevation rate would you recommend for a roadway with a design speed of 100 km/hr and a radius of curvature of 500 m? Assume f = 0.11.

#### Cstr reactors of equal volume in series

Compare the total reactor volume required for 90% removal of the same pollutant in a CSTR system that contains a single reactor against a system that contains three CSTR reactors of equal volume in series.

#### Compute the maximum acceptable tensile load

Compute the maximum acceptable tensile load Pu, on an angle L6x4x3/4 when connected to both legs. The 4 in. leg contains a single gage line of 7/8in. diameter bolts, and the 6in.

#### Maximum acceptable tensile service load

Compute the maximum acceptable tensile service load T that may act on a single angle L6x4x3/4 that is welded along only one leg to a gusset plate; thus, there are no holes. The service load is three times the dead load. Solve for a0 A36 steel.

#### Existing equal tangent sag curve

An overpass is being built over the PVI of an existing equal tangent sag curve. The sag curve has a 70 mi/h design speed, and G1 = -6%, G2 = +3%.

#### Coefficient of friction-skidding resistance

Two passenger cars are traveling at 65 MPH on a highway moving in the same direction in the same lane. The cars are separated by 25 feet for every 10 MPH of their speed. The coefficient of friction (skidding resistance) between the tires and the r..

#### Average shearing stress

Two strips of a plastics material are bonded together as shown. The average shearing stress in the glue must be limited to 1000 kpa.

#### Concentration of tracer in the reactor

What is the concentration of tracer in the reactor 1 h after tracer addition is terminated? The reactor had an initial concentration of tracer of 1.0 mg/L when tracer addition commenced.

#### Deflection of a simple uniformly loaded beam

Determine the deflection of a simple uniformly loaded beam by the Ritz method,using first one term, then two terms, adn finally three terms in a sine series. Why does the coefficient of sin2piex/L vanish?

#### Allowable shearing stress

The allowable shearing stress is 15 ksi in the steel rod AB and 8 ksi in the brass rod BC. Knowing that the torque of magnitude T=10 kip * in. is applied at A, determine the required diameter of a) rod AB, b) rod BC.
