Food/Bioprocess Modeling handbook from C.H.I.P.S.

Handbook of Food and Bioprocess Modeling Techniques
edited by Shyam S. Sablani

Handbook of Food and Bioprocess Modeling Techniques provides a comprehensive overview of the modeling options available to today's researcher. It covers a wide range of topics including:

  • transport processes
  • reaction kinetics
  • probabilistic modeling
  • data mining
  • neural network and genetic algorithms
  • both mesoscale and macroscale modeling

Each chapter is complete with a clear, succinct description of a specific modeling technique, followed by detailed examples of the utilization, application, benefits, and limitations of the technique described. The book emphasizes problem formulation and explains the choice and structure of the modeling technique from an application point of view.

Features:

  • Offers fundamental aspects, problem formulation, and solutions as well as practical applications for different modeling techniques
  • Covers a huge range of techniques including computational fluid dynamics, stochastic modeling, lattice-Boltzmann, multivariate analysis, artificial neural network modeling, fuzzy modeling, and dimensional analysis
  • Explains the benefits and limitations of modeling techniques as appropriate for different levels of complexity
  • Emphasizes problem formulation and offers numerous examples of applications of each technique in the food industry
  • Compiles the efforts of contributors from around the globe
