Simulation of heat and mass transfer in products.

Author(s) : SLUIS S. M. van der


Recent results of simulation of cooling and freezing of bread and bakery products are presented, obtained with the "Baktix" finite-element simulation program. The program can be used not only to calculate cooling or freezing times, but also weight losses and the internal moisture distribution during the cooling and freezing process. The current program was produced for the cooling of carcasses. The next step in the developments of the program is to extend it's use to new classes of products. One such class is fishery products. Another application field under study is the application of the program to calculate "time of death" from temperature data of mortal crime victims.
