Abstract

ARBOLEDA, DIANA; VALENCIA, VÍCTOR; ESPINOSA, JAIRO  and  OCHOA, OSCAR. MATHEMATICAL MODELLING FOR THE THERMAL PROCESS OF CYLINDRICAL MEAT PRODUCTS. Dyna rev.fac.nac.minas [online]. 2010, vol.77, n.164, pp.301-307. ISSN 0012-7353.

The objective of this work was to develop a mathematical model to simulate the behavior of temperature and weight losses in a cylindrical meat product during the thermal process. A geometric shape similar to the real product was used to develop the model. Such shape was divided in concentric cylinders. Along the concentric cylinders a mass and energy balance was developed. This model was validated with experimental data. The mathematical model represents properly the behavior of temperature at various locations along the radius of the product; however the precision of the weight losses was not of such a high quality due to instrumental limitations. The models were simulated in MATLAB Simulink ®

Keywords : Thermal process; meat product; mathematical modelling.
