Abstract

Heat transfer modes (conduction, convection and radiation) during baking of chapattis in a continuous oven were studied for their individual effects on the process. Specific heat, thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity were calculated from data obtained during baking of chapattis on 2 slat conveyors at respective temp. of 325 and 275C. Mathematical expressions describing conduction, convection and radiation were incorporated into a model for predicting heat transfer by each mode during the baking process. It was determined that conduction was the major source of heat transfer to chapattis during baking (66.73%); the contribution of radiation (from insulated oven linings and flame) and convection to heat transfer were determined as 24.97 and 8.24%, respectively. It is concluded that the proposed model could be useful in estimating individual contributions of conduction, convection and radiation to overall heat transfer during baking of chapattis.
