Computational Fluid Dynamics in Food Processing
edited by Da-Wen Sun

Computational Fluid Dynamics in Food Processing is a unique book which illustrates the use of CFD for solving heat and mass transfer problems in the food industry.


  • Examines the application of computational fluid dynamics in food processing systems
  • Provides an overview of CFD as well as specific applications in cold-chain facilities
  • Offers a three-dimensional model of continuous industrial baking process
  • Illustrates CFD modeling of simultaneous heat and mass transfer in beef chilling
  • Features contributions from an international group of authors

The book covers the use of CFD for gaining a qualitative and quantitative assessment of the performance of processes involving heat and mass transfer, such as:

  • mixing
  • drying
  • cooking
  • sterilization
  • chilling
  • cold storage

Specific chapters cover:

  • airflow in refrigerated trucks
  • retail display cabinets, microwaves, and doorways
  • velocity in meat dryers and spray drying
  • thermal sterilization
  • plate heat exchangers
  • membrane separation systems
  • jet impingement ovens
  • food extrusion and high-pressure processing
  • prediction of hygiene
  • design of biosensors
  • the fermentation of tea and ripening of cheese

Drawing from an esteemed panel of international professionals and academics, Computational Fluid Dynamics in Food Processing provides engineers and technologists in research, development, and operations with critical, comprehensive, and readily accessible information on the art and science of CFD technology.
