Processes of Heat and Mass Transfer during Drying of Red Beetroot

Red beetroot is the main raw material which has a high content of betanine with antioxidant properties. An important emphasis in the processing of antioxidant raw materials by drying is to reduce energy consumption for the dehydration process, the maximum preservation of biologically active substances, and to reduce the cost of the final product. Drying is a complex and energy-intensive process.


The article dwells on the mathematical model of heat and mass transfer processes in „environment-protective clothing-human” system which takes into account simultaneous penetration of ambient heat and toxic chemicals in the multi-layer membrane of garments with air gap. On the basis of this model, the parameters of a gas and heat protective suit are reasonably defined.

Mathematical simulation of hight-temperature drying of wood

The article implemented mathematical modelling of processes of heat-mass-transfer and viscous-elastic deformation in in hygroscopic capillary-porous materials with variable anisotropic heat and mechanics characteristics what is of importance for the rational choice and substantiation of energy conservative technologies of timber drying under the conditions of necessary qualitative production providing.

Кінетика фільтраційного сушіння амофосу

The paper is dedicated to theoretical and experimental investigation of the kinetics of ammophos filtration drying. On the basis of experimental investigations, the criterial dependencies for determination of heat-and-mass transfer are received and the analogy between external heat transfer and mass transfer is determined. Розглядаються теоретичні та експериментальні дослідження кінетики фільтра- ційного сушіння амофосу.

Моделювання тепло-масообмінних процесів під час фільтраційного сушіння струганого березового шпону

A process of filtration drying of packed birch veneer is proposed. Experimentally determined heat-and-mass transfer coefficients depending on the speed of the thermal agent and presented in the form of criterial equations. Coefficient of internal diffusion of moisture from veneer sheets is determined and set its dependence on temperature. Запропоновано процес фільтраційного сушіння березового шпону у пакеті. Експериментально визначені коефіцієнти тепло- та масопередачі залежно від швидкості руху теплового агента представлені у формі критеріальних рівнянь.

The mathematical modeling of convective process of wood drying with taking into account phase transitions boundaries

The mathematical model of heat and mass transfer in capillary-porous bodies for drying with taking into account the zone of evaporation movement is given in the work. The analytical solutions of nonlinear problems of heat and mass transfer for unsteady regimes of drying are received. The effect of duration of drying regimes on the temperature of phase transition in wood is investigated
