Abstract The radiofrequency (RF) defrosting of tuna ( Thunnus maccoyii ) was investigated experimentally and by mathematical modeling using an innovative three-dimensional (3D) defrosting model. To test the simulated results, we thawed samples from −60 °C to −3 °C (center temperature) using a 13.56-MHz parallel-plate RF system and by thawing in air. The center and circumference temperatures were measured by optical fiber sensors. The model was developed using three finite element programs, or… CONTINUE READING
