Derivative-Free Optimization Methods for Handling Fixed Costs in Optimal Groundwater Remediation Design

Thomas Hemker, Kathleen Fowler & Thomas Hemker
Groundwater remediation design problems are routine in water resource management. The starting point for such a design problem is to formulate an objective function that represents a measure of the manager's goal. For example, in plume migration control, we need to determine the cost to design a well field to alter the direction of groundwater flow and thereby control the destination of a contaminant. Constraints must be specified to ensure that the plume is captured,...
