Title: Experimental Measurements of Clothes Dryer Drum Heat and Mass Transfer Effectiveness

Abstract

Accurate system modeling of a clothes dryer requires a drum component model that displays correct trends with respect to changing conditions. In this work, a model of drum heat and mass transfer effectiveness is adopted. Within this framework, experimental measurements of drum effectiveness are investigated with respect to several variables: drum volume, load mass, cloth type, drum volumetric air flow rate, and drum entering air temperature. These data can inform the modeling and simulation of any clothes dryer with horizontal-axis, axial-flow tumble-type clothes dryer drum.
