Parameters Identification for Wood Drying
The importance of the process of drying solids in industry is widely recognized for some time now. The energy consumption in drying and its proportion in total energy balance has been often emphasized by various reports. The proper management of our energy resources requires an improvement of the existing drying techniques and innovation of new technologies. However, without an improved understanding of drying processes and employment of mathematical models and computer simulations, engineering a new drying system will remain largely an art.
