Strategic Business Decisions pp Cite as. Transportation problem is a special case of LPP. In a typical transportation problem, the objective is to transport various amounts of a single homogeneous commodity that are initially stored at various origins, to different destinations in such a way that the total transportation cost is minimal.
Module 1 -TRANSPORTATION MODEL AND ITS VARIANTS
For 54 unimodular linear programming problems it is shown that either i the objective function is unbounded, or ii the problem is infeasible, or iii the problem can be solved by solving a related transportation problem. The related transportation problem is obtained by adding at the most two new constraints to the original problem. This is a preview of subscription content, access via your institution.

Transportation Models and Its Variants
Transshipment problems form a subgroup of transportation problems, where transshipment is allowed. In transshipment, transportation may or must go through intermediate nodes, possibly changing modes of transport. The Transshipment problem has its origins in medieval times [ dubious — discuss ] when trading started to become a mass phenomenon. Obtaining the minimum-cost route had been the main priority. However, technological development slowly gave priority to minimum-duration transportation problems. Transshipment or Transhipment is the shipment of goods or containers to an intermediate destination, and then from there to yet another destination. One possible reason is to change the means of transport during the journey for example from ship transport to road transport , known as transloading.
Metrics details. In a transshipment problem all the sources and destinations can function in any direction thus transshipment is very useful to reduce the transportation cost. This has motivated me to discuss impaired and enhanced flow in a transshipment problem. Algorithms are provided for solving such transshipment problems by transforming the original problem into an equivalent transportation problem by adding an additional row and a column. The optimal solution of the transformed transportation problem gives the optimal solution of the given transshipment problem having the same objective function value. I have considered both balanced as well unbalanced transshipment problems and have also discussed various situations emerging out of unbalanced capacitated transshipment problems in the form of inequalities.

Merits of shear-stress transport and its wall-distance-free variant are evaluated by accommodating comparisons with direct numerical simulation and experimental data for heat and fluid flow problems. To improve the temperature field predictions in turbulent boundary layers and around the stagnation region accompanied by flow separation and reattachment, the thermal eddy diffusivity is approximated via the turbulent eddy viscosity using a variable turbulent Prandtl number P r t. A new eddy-viscosity bound that responds to both rotational and irrotational strains to better predict nonequilibrium flows is incorporated.
