A Three-Dimensional Multiscale Model for Gas Exchange in Fruit1[C][W][OA]
Respiration of bulky plant organs such as roots, tubers, stems, seeds, and fruit depends very much on oxygen (O2) availability and often follows a Michaelis-Menten-like response. A multiscale model… Expand

We review nondestructive techniques for measuring internal and external quality attributes of fruit and vegetables, such as color, size and shape, flavor, texture, and absence of defects. Expand
Multiscale modeling in food engineering
Since many years food engineers have attempted to describe physical phenomena such as heat and mass transfer that occur in food during unit operations by means of mathematical models. Foods are… Expand
Comparison of X-ray CT and MRI of watercore disorder of different apple cultivars
Abstract Watercore is an internal disorder that appears as water-soaked, glassy regions near the core in apples. Fast and non-destructive solutions for sensing watercore would be readily accepted in… Expand
X-ray CT for quantitative food microstructure engineering: The apple case
Abstract Apple fruit is a major crop that can be supplied year-round due to low temperature storage in a controlled atmosphere with a reduced oxygen concentration and an increased carbon dioxide… Expand
Three-dimensional microscale modelling of CO2 transport and light propagation in tomato leaves enlightens photosynthesis.
We present a combined three-dimensional (3-D) model of light propagation, CO2 diffusion and photosynthesis in tomato (Solanum lycopersicum L.) leaves. The model incorporates a geometrical… Expand
Synchrotron X-ray computed laminography of the 3-D anatomy of tomato leaves
Void space inside the developing seed of Brassica napus and the modelling of its function
The developing seed essentially relies on external oxygen to fuel aerobic respiration, but it is currently unknown how oxygen diffuses into and within the seed, which structural pathways are used and… Expand
Optical coherence tomography visualizes microstructure of apple peel
Abstract Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has emerged recently as a non-destructive technique to visualize subsurface structures of materials. The objective of this work was to investigate whether… Expand
Application of MRI for tissue characterisation of ‘Braeburn’ apple
Abstract Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has become a well-established technique for non-destructive analysis of the internal (micro)structure of food, and the related heat, gas, water and solutes… Expand
