Abstract

A computer simulation model was developed for a solar lumber drier and a solardehumidification drier. Experimental data taken on an existing solar and solardehumidification drier compared well with the computer prediction. The solardehumidification lumber drier is able to dry wood about as fast as a conventional drier and yet use less than 50 percent of the fossel fuel energy at the site. © 1982 by ASME.
