Effect of greenhouse on crop drying under natural and forced convection I: Evaluation of convective mass transfer coefficient
In this paper, a study of convective mass transfer coefficient and rate of moisture removal from cabbage and peas for open sun drying and inside greenhouse drying has been performed as a function of climatic parameters. ...
Effect of greenhouse on crop drying under natural and forced convection II. Thermal modeling and experimental validation
In this paper, mathematical models are presented to study the thermal behavior of crops (cabbage and peas) for open sun drying (natural convection) and inside the greenhouse under both natural and forced convection. The ...
Modeling and optimal design of ground air collector for heating in controlled environment greenhouse
A mathematical model is devised to study the thermal behavior of a greenhouse while heating with a ground air collector (GAC). A computer program based on MatLab software has been used to predict the plant and room ...
