Simulation of the thin layer drying of corn by means of the diffusional model

, : Simulation of the thin layer drying of corn by means of the diffusional model. Lebensmittel-Wissenschaft & Technologie 21(2): 83-86

The thin-layer drying of corn at 40, 50, 60 and C was investigated. Simulation of the experimental data was performed by means of Fick's second law for diffusion out of sphere, with constant diffusivity. An accurate fitting of the experimental drying curves was obtained assuming that the surface moisture content remains constant during drying period. It was found that the values of surface moisture content calculated from Fick's equation are greater than equilibrium moisture contents determined from the desortion isotherms. An Arrhenius temperature dependence of moisture diffusivity was found with the activation energy 6. 6 kcal/g mol.

Puberty in heifers is attained after a period of 6-24 months of postnatal maturation, which, from a teleological standpoint, may be said to allow the process of natural selection to delay weaker animals from reproducing. Puberty occurs at a specif...
