Forced-convective cooling of citrus fruit: Cooling conditions and energy consumption in relation to package design
Abstract The performance of an existing container for orange fruit and two new designs, stacked on a pallet, has been evaluated for forced-convective precooling using computational fluid dynamics.Expand

Intercomparison of package designs for cooling of citrus fruit by experimental and numerical analysis
The cooling performance of three package designs for citrus fruit is evaluated, both experimentally and numerically, i.e., with computational fluid dynamics (CFD). The accuracy of the CFD simulationsExpand
