Description

This report presents one method for systematically estimating heat consumption in a dry kiln. The basis for evaluating heat use is presented along with a description of the specific elements of heat consumption. All necessary physical relationships are described in detail for those who wish to employ them. One point of interest here is the fact that the system described will readily lend itself to the construction of a mathematical model.
