"Study of the return on investment response surface of a characteristic chemical plant indicates unimodality in the valid region, but the optimum design condition with this response surface is strongly affected by the correlation used for the investment. The method used for the design of this type of chemical plant incorporates the use of a simulation routine for preliminary estimates"--Abstract, page ii.
