Food Process Modeling
3 – 0 – 0 : 3 Credits Prerequsites: None
Identification of design, operating and performance parameters in
mechanical, thermal and mass transfer operations carried out in food
processing such as: particulate size reduction, homogenization,
centrifugation, packaging, mixing, conveying, extrusion, storage, heating,
cooling, freezing, puffing, frying, distillation, extraction, concentration and
drying; Developing mathematical relationship between the independent and
dependent variables affecting the food processing operations by using
physical and chemical principles governing the processes.
Factorial, fractional-factorial and rotatable central composite experimental
design; Developing empirical equations using experimental data. Developing
predictive model using feed forward back propagation Neural network;
Optimization of processing parameters using Genetic algorithms. Application
of Fuzzy logic to sensory evaluation and ranking of foods.
