Changes in fluidization behaviour of three geometrical shaped food particulates, cylindrica (beans), parallelipied (potato) and spherical (peas) with change in moisture content during drying were investigated using a fluidized bed dryer. Fluidization behaviour was characterised for cylindrical shape particles with three length : diameter ratio; 1:1, 2:1 and 3:1, parallepiped particles with three aspect ratios, 1:1, 2:1 and 3:1 and spherical particles.

Search Google Scholar™

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.
