A Mathematical Model of theDrying Process

A. K. Haghi


A convective drying model is proposed which may be used to describe the drying behavior of leather. Using this model, the calculated transient leather temperature agrees well with experimental values. Variations in temperature and moisture content distribution are solved using the finite-difference method. The effects of operation parameters, such as temperature and humidity in the dryer, initial moisture content of the leather, and heat and mass transfer coefficients are examined using the model.
