Offers information necessary for the development of mathematical models and numerical techniques to solve specific drying problems. The book addresses difficult issues involved with the drying equations of numerical analysis, including mesh generation, discretinization strategies, the nonlinear equation set and the linearized algebraic system, convergance criteria, time step control, experimental validation, optimum methods of visualization results, and more.
