About this book

Introduction

Drying of Polymeric and Solid Materials shows for the first time how the process of drying can be enhanced by combining mathematical and numerical models with experiments. The main advantages of this method are a significant saving of time and money. Numerical modelling can predict the kinetics of drying and the profiles of liquid concentration through the solid. This helps in the selection of optimal operational conditions. The simulation of the process is also crucial in the assessment of diffusity and the rate of evaporation.
