Provides advances in research on drying of particulate and porous materials. This book is based on a selection of papers presented at the XI the Polish Drying Symposium 2005. The papers cover theoretical, as well as experimental and modeling research on heat and mass transfer processes during drying of porous material, and fluidized beds.
