Abstract

Mesh free numerical modelling has recently attracted increased attention for modelling the plant cellular structure for various applications. Simulating morphological changes in the food plant cellular structure during dying is one such key application. Due to the higher moisture content, food-plant materials are highly prone to drastic morphological changes during drying process. It has been shown that the microscale models using a coupled SPH-CG approach developed in this paper could facilitate the easy extension up to multiscale levels in 2-D as well as in 3-D. The main attributes targeted by this model includes incorporation of cellular level accuracy and computational efficiency gained by utilizing meshfree-based computational strategy.
