THEORY OF DRYING AND STORAGE OF AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTS
Keywords:agriculture, Drying, Storage, Agriculture Products, Agricultural Processes
The monograph presents the theoretical basis and results of the calculation of the dynamics of heat and moisture migration in biologically active systems during storage (minimum moisture loss) and drying (maximum moisture release) of agricultural products. The advantages of calculating the heat-mass transfer on the basis of the extended thermodynamic potential (moisture potential) of the phases of non-stationary processes are shown. The calculation methods are based on technological, thermophysical, energy and environmental aspects. The monograph emphasizes the theoretical basis of the laws of heat-mass migration processes that occur in biologically active systems on the basis of non-stationary external influences. In particular, calculations have been developed and are scientifically based to minimize moisture release during storage of freshly harvested agricultural products and to ensure maximum moisture release during drying of wet hay.
The monograph is primarily based on construction and intended for doctoral students and masters of research engaged in the development of methods for improving the design features and technologies of technological facilities, as well as researchers, masters and bachelors, doctoral students, specialists directly involved in the design and operation of buildings and structures.
