A simple liquid diffusion model was developed in the present study to quantitatively assess the influence of various operating parameters of engineering interest in drying of heat-sensitive materials. Heat of wetting, temperature, and moisture dependent effective diffusivity and thermal conductivity, changes in product density and drying-induced ideal shrinkage of the product are considered in this model. The effects of combining convection with conduction, radiation, and volumetric heating using a microwave field are simulated in view of the increasing interest in multimode heat input drying processes. Numerical results are reported on drying of potato slices to demonstrate how the moisture and temperature profiles as well as drying performance are affected by multi-mode heat input. Effects of key parameters e.g., drying air velocity, temperature, relative humidity, and product thickness are computed and discussed.||Source Title:||Drying Technology||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/61304||ISSN:||07373937||DOI:||10.1081/DRT-120018455|
