  author={Stefan Jan Kowalski and Grzegorz Musielak and Jacek Banaszak},
The article presents a mathematical model of drying that describes the kinetics of combined microwave-convective drying for the process as a whole. Based on this model, the drying curves and the temperature evolutions of the drying body were constructed by a number of computer-simulated drying programs, which were chosen to follow the respective experimental processes carried out on a cylindrical sample made of kaolin. The experimental data allowed both the estimate of material coefficients… CONTINUE READING
