Physical property changes of fruits and vegetables during hot air drying

Senadeera, Wijitha, Bhandari, Bhesh R., Young, Gordon, & Wijesinghe, Bandu (2000) Physical property changes of fruits and vegetables during hot air drying. In Mujumdar, Arun S. (Ed.) Drying technology in agriculture and food sciences. Science Publishers, USA, pp. 149-166.


Drying is a complex process and involves simultaneous mass and heat transfer accompanied by physical and structural changes. These changes influence the drying characteristics and fluidisation properties of the particulate materials. These physical characteristics are important parameters in designing equipment pertaining to the food industry.In this chapter physical changes are descibed and some models are presented.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
