Computational Fluid Dynamics in Food Processing by Da-Wen Sun

By Da-Wen Sun

The implementation of early-stage simulation instruments, in particular computational fluid dynamics (CFD), is a world and interdisciplinary pattern that enables engineers to computer-test suggestions all through the improvement of a approach or procedure. With the enhancement of computing strength and potency, and the provision of cheap CFD programs, the functions of CFD have prolonged into the foodstuff for modeling commercial tactics, acting finished analyses, and optimizing the potency and value effectiveness of the hot strategies and systems.
starting a brand new sequence devoted to modern, updated meals engineering practices, Computational Fluid Dynamics in meals Processing is the 1st e-book of its variety to demonstrate using CFD for fixing warmth and mass move difficulties within the nutrition undefined. utilizing a computational grid, CFD solves governing equations that describe fluid movement throughout every one grid mobilephone via an iterative method which will expect and visualize the profiles of pace, temperature, strain, and different parameters. beginning with an outline of CFD expertise and functions, the publication illustrates using CFD for gaining a qualitative and quantitative overview of the functionality of tactics concerning warmth and mass move. particular chapters conceal airflow in refrigerated vans, retail demonstrate cupboards, microwaves, and doors; speed in meat dryers and spray drying; thermal sterilization; plate warmth exchangers; membrane separation platforms; jet impingement ovens; meals extrusion and high-pressure processing; prediction of hygiene; layout of biosensors; and the fermentation of tea and ripening of cheese.
Drawing from an esteemed panel of overseas pros and lecturers, this groundbreaking bookprovides engineers and technologists in study, improvement, and operations with severe, accomplished, and comfortably available details at the paintings and technological know-how of CFD technology.
