A three-dimensional (3D) simultaneous heat and moisture transfer drying model for a single wheat kernel was developed. The model was based on the information obtained from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of wheat drying. The model assumed a non-uniform initial moisture distribution and two different values of water diffusion coefficients in the germ and endosperm of a wheat kernel. The model was theoretically developed using finite element method and then solved using COMSOL ® Multiphysics™, a… CONTINUE READING
