Optimisation of Solar Air Heating Collectors Used for Crop Prying

This paper describes theoretical analyses applied to the optimum design of two types of solar crop dryers. One uses a flat plate solar collector and the other a multilayered one. The design specification was to reduce moisture content of 90kg of shelled maize from 20% to 13% moisture content, wet basis, in one day.
