Plant tissue has a complex cellular structure which is an aggregate of individual cells bonded by middle lamella. During drying process, plant tissues undergoes extreme deformations which mainly driven by moisture removal and turgor loss. Numerical modeling of this problem becomes challenging when conventional grid-based modeling techniques such as finite elements and finite difference methods are considered due to grid-based limitations. This work presents a mesh-free approach to model and simulate the deformations of plant tissue during drying.
