FINITE-ELEMENT SIMULATION OF ROUGH RICE DRYING Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Milled, brown and rough rice samples were dried in the laboratory with heated air and diffusivities of the endosperm, bran and husk were evaluated with a search technique using the finite element method. The endosperm had the highest diffusivity. The husk had a slightly higher diffusivity than the bran because the trapped air inside the husk was considered as an integral part of the husk. The finite element method predicted rough rice drying that was in good agreement with experimental results. Copyright © 1994, Taylor & Francis Group, LLC. All rights reserved.
