LOPEZ-MATA, Fernando A; VALENCIA-LOPEZ, José J  and  MEDINA-TORRES, Luis. Modeling of Heat Transfer in the Thermal Treatment of Canned Products. Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2016, vol.27, n.6, pp.85-94. ISSN 0718-0764.

A mathematical model and its numerical solution in Computational Fluid Dynamics software (CFD, for its acronym in English) for the determination of heat transfer on a foodstuff canned, with non-Newtonian rheological properties. The heat transfer inside the can is analyzed in order to obtain temperature profiles that help to determine the optimum conditions of heat transfer in the process of sterilization of canned products. In addition, the influence of heat transfer on the kinetics of destruction of pathogenic microorganisms such as the spore-producing bacteria Clostridium botulinum, is analyzed.

Keywords : computational fluid dynamics; heat transfer; canned product; condensed milk.
