Influence of shapes of selected vegetable materials on drying kinetics during fluidized bed drying
Senadeera, Wijitha W., Bhandari, Bhesh R., Young, Gordon, & Wijesinghe, Bandu (2003) Influence of shapes of selected vegetable materials on drying kinetics during fluidized bed drying. Journal of Food Engineering, 58(3), pp. 277-283.
Three different particular geometrical shapes of parralleliped, cylinder and spherie were taken from cut green beans (length:diameter=1:1. 2:1 and 3:1)and potatoes (aspect ratio=1:1,2:1 and 3:1)and peas respectively. Their drying behaviour ina fluidised bed was studied at thre drying temperatures of 30, 40 and 50 C(RH=15%). drying curves were constructed using non-dimensional moistur ratio(MR) and Time and their behaviour was modelled using exponential (MR = exp (-kt))and Page (MR=exp(-ktn))models.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and 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 theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
