Principles of Post-harvest Equipment Engineering

This course is an elective undergraduate course which is intended for engineers and engineering students in agricultural machinery engineering. The course is aimed to teach students the engineering principles required to handle and store agricultural products after harvest. In other words, the engineering principles and practices of post harvest operations for the maintenance of quality of agricultural products is explained.

The course contents include:

  • Heat transfer
  • Mass transfer
  • Psychrometrics
  • Drying
  • Aeration systems
  • Solar desiccant
  • Fluid Mechanics
  • Thermodynamics
