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. ...
Mathematical modeling for greenhouse heating by using thermal curtain and geothermal energy
A thermal model has been developed for the heating of a greenhouse by using inner thermal curtain and natural flow of geothermal warm water through the polyethylene tube laid on its floor. The calculations were done for a ...
Thermal modeling of a greenhouse with an integrated earth to air heat exchanger: an experimental validation
A simplified analytical model is developed to study the year round effectiveness of a recirculation type earth air heat exchanger coupled with a greenhouse located in IIT Delhi, India. The performance of the system was ...
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 ...
Evaluation of convective mass transfer coefficient during drying of jaggery
In this paper an attempt is made to evaluate the convective mass transfer coefficient during drying of jaggery in a controlled environment. In this method, different masses of jaggery were used. The jaggery was dried in ...
