dc.description An output from collaboration with Kwame Nkrumah University in Ghana. The mathematical model developed at DMU was used to build a full-scale dryer in Ghana, which in turn helped to further validate the model. This research is relevant to developing countries where use of conventional energy in food drying is too expensive. The Ghanian government is sponsoring follow on research at DMU (Dr F. Forson, Dep. of Mech. Eng., Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Kumasi, Ghana). en
