Abstract

The drying of materials is often described by nonlinear diffusion equations. Up to now the only way to solve these equations is by numerical simulations. Recently an analytic solution has been proposed for the drying problem. Based on this solution a sharp drying front model is presented. Measured moisture profiles during drying and the drying curve of gypsum are compared with approximate models. © 2004 by Marcel Dekker, Inc.
