Specific heat of Nanduan 1 variety of wheat was determined by Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) in the temperature range of -10 to 110°C and initial moisture content from 19.90% wet basis reduced to 6.23% dry basis by 130°C oven drying. The specific heat ranged from 1.0792 to 5.5336 kJ/kg oC. A multiple regression model relating specific heat to temperature and moisture content was developed in the temperature range of 0-70°C. The calculated curve fit the observed curve well, with an R… CONTINUE READING
