A Cost Effective Approach to Biodiesel Storage

by Patrick Smith


Submitted : Fall 2010

In this project I explore the dimensions of an optimized tank with respect to design costs.  A farmer wishes to have his tank installed that is the most cost effective in design. By using the calculus technique of optimization I am able to find the ideal dimensions of this particular tank design using any given cost ratio.
