Heat and mass transfer in porous media are interdisciplinary fields for fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, and chemical engineering. This book offers a comprehensive review of heat and mass transfer phenomena and mechanisms in drying of porous materials. It covers pore-scale and macro-scale models for heat and mass transfer in porous media. It includes various drying technologies such as air impingement drying, pulsed vacuum drying, microwave drying, radio-frequency drying, infrared drying etc. It also discusses the drying dynamics of fibrous porous material, colloidal porous media and size-distributed particle system.
