Modelling the micro-climate of packed cut flowers during precooling.

Author(s) : WANG H., CETON C., TOUBER S.

Summary

A numerical simulation model describing the thermodynamic behaviour of precooling processes of cut flowers is presented. The precooling process, involving complex shapes of cut flowers and the packaging method as well as simultaneous heat and water vapour transport, is firstly simplified and the equations that govern this process are presented and then solved numerically. The result of a pre-cooling experiment is presented and compared with the predicted data.
