Theoretical models of single droplet drying kinetics: A review Academic Article uri icon


  • During the last decades, growing attention has been given to theoretical and experimental studies of drying behavior of single droplet containing solids. This research interest is motivated by the need for fundamental understanding of the drying phenomena in extensively used technological processes like spray drying, fluidized bed drying, pneumatic drying, etc., at drop-wise and particulate levels. The present literature review summarizes the developed theoretical models of single droplet drying kinetics, discovers their benefits and deficiencies, and identifies prospects for future research.
