Parameters for Heat Transport in Radiata Pine Board
A universal transit heat transport equation was represented and all parameters for applying such a formula to drying of Radiata pine were modeled, incorporating reasonable physical conditions. In previous empirical models, the influence of drying temperature on the conviction heat transfer was ignored, though it is parentally not negligible. In this study, a multivariate regression model was developed from previous experimental data, in which both air velocity and drying temperature were taken into consideration. In addition, the models of heat diffusion properties in axial, tangential and radial directions were presented in which drying conditions and wood properties were taken into account. With those models, scenario computer simulation may be conducted to explore the drying phenomena of Radiata pine board.
