    Abstract: The primary goal of the current work is to model heat and mass transfer during mango drying in a wavy airflow dryer. By modifying the dryer walls, we were able to produce the undulating airflow (with V-shaped obstacles). With convective boundary conditions applied to all product surfaces, the explicit finite difference approach was used to study he... Show More

    Abstract: In order to fill gaps in research into the use of elbow flow meters and to reconcile both a lack of published standards and differing recommendations on the necessary minimum lengths of straight pipe that should be installed upstream of an elbow flow meter to ensure sufficiently accurate flow measurement, physical data were collected on 50 mm nomin...

    Abstract: Commercial pig farms in Cambodia produce great amounts of wastewater. To convert wastewater into energy, many farms have installed simple covered lagoon digesters. However, most biodigesters lack desulfurizing systems to reduce H2S present in biogas for smooth generator operation. Desulfurizing systems are not available locally and must be imported... Show More
