F. Problems Requiring Other Resources

F1. An adsorbent gas drier has been sized to contain 2580 cubic feet of adsorbent. The drier will be an horizontal cylindrical vessel that has a circular cross-section and flow from top to bottom of the vessel (across the circular cross-section). The adsorbent will be supported above the bottom of the vessel. The area (width × length) of the adsorbent layer at the adsorbent support should be 860 ft2. Determine the vessel dimensions that will minimize the weight of the vessel (minimum weight will be minimum cost) subject to the constraints that the vessel is designed for an operating pressure of 6 atm, a maximum temperature of 500°C, a maximum diameter of 16 feet, and a maximum length of 60 feet.
