Browning disorders in pear fruit
Disorders occurring during long-term storage of pears can cause economic loss, especially when disordered fruit cannot be distinguished externally from sound fruit. A typical category of disorders inExpand

Combined discrete element and CFD modelling of airflow through random stacking of horticultural products in vented boxes
A direct model, using the explicit geometry of stacked products in boxes, was developed and used to study the local and average airflow through stacks of horticultural products. The discrete elementExpand

Three-Dimensional Gas Exchange Pathways in Pome Fruit Characterized by Synchrotron X-Ray Computed Tomography1[C][W][OA]
Our understanding of the gas exchange mechanisms in plant organs critically depends on insights in the three-dimensional (3-D) structural arrangement of cells and voids. Using synchrotron radiationExpand

A Continuum Model for Metabolic Gas Exchange in Pear Fruit
We have developed a mathematical model to predict the internal gas concentrations, including permeation, diffusion, and respiration and fermentation kinetics in fruit. Expand

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 modelExpand

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 areExpand

Multifractal properties of pore-size distribution in apple tissue using X-ray imaging
Abstract The pore-size distribution (PSD) has an important influence on the complex gas transport phenomena (O2 and CO2) that occur in apple tissue during storage under controlled atmosphereExpand

Review: Convective heat and mass exchange predictions at leaf surfaces: Applications, methods and perspectives
Convective heat and mass exchange of leaves with the environment is relevant for a better understanding of plant physiological processes in response to environmental factors for a wide range ofExpand

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 dioxideExpand

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 geometricalExpand
