I«m trying to model with FEA (Finite Element Analysis)

the moisture transfer between grain and air in the last

stage of dryeration (when the grain is loaded in the

cooling bin and air is blown through it).

Does anybody know any related material or publication

that I can use as a reference to do the modeling.

I found useful any information about head loss in

grain venting, and moisture transfer between air

and grain.

As sensors for tracking both grain and air moisture, I would recommend

- the Micro-Moist from EG&G Berthold ( for the grain

- dew point sensors from any manufacturer for the air

For the moisture in grain, you may also contact:

EG&G Instruments, Oak-Ridge,TN USA
