Generalized network flow gnf problem

Generalized Network Flow (GNF) Problem

  • Each arc (i, j) has a multiplier ij

    • If 1 unit of flow leaves node i on arc (i, j), then ij will arrive node j.

    • When ij< 1 the arc is said to be lossy.

    • When ij> 1 the arc is said to be gainy.

    • cij, ij and uij apply to the amount of flow leaving node i.

Supply of fresh wood

Supply of Fresh Wood

  • Add arc (F, F) with multiplier FF .

  • Flow Out = xF1b + xF2b + xF3b + xFF

  • Flow In = FFxFF

  • Out – In = xF1b + xF2b + xF3b + (1-FF)xFF

  • Let bF = 0 and FF = 2.

  • 0 = xF1b + xF2b + xF3b + (-1)xFF

  • xFF= xF1b + xF2b + xF3b


Supply of wood type 1

Supply of Wood Type 1

  • Add arc (1a, 1a) with multiplier 1a1a.

  • Flow Out = x1a1a + x1a1b + x1a2b

  • Flow In = 1a1ax1a1a

  • Out – In = x1a1b + x1a2b + (1-1a1a)x1a1a

  • Let b1a = 4000 and 1a1a = 0.5.

  • x1a1b + x1a2b + (0.5)x1a1a= 4000

  • Unused supply of wood type 1 = x1a1a
