Paper Title:
Effects of Heating Vents in a Tunnel-Type Dryer
  Abstract

This work employs FDS to simulate the heating process of a tunnel-type dryer and visualizes the computational results using Smokeview. The inappropriate design of a tunnel-type dryer in a factory has motivated this work. This poorly designed dryer not only has caused terrible fuel consumption but also produced parts some of which are under- or over-cooked. These are caused by the terribly uneven temperature distribution within the dryer. In order to improve the evenness of temperature distribution, this work simulates and investigates the effects of various ventilation schemes. Based on the results, it is found that the hot air intake vent should be placed at the bottom whereas the cold air outtake vent at the top. The flow rate through the intake vents does not have a very significant effect on the temperature distribution after 40 s.
