set at retort temperature), the new temperature reached at each node can be calculated after a short time interval (At) that would be consistent with the thermal diffusivity of the product obtained from heat penetration data (fa). This new temperature distribution is then taken to replace the initial one, and the procedure is repeated to calculate the temperature distribution after another time interval. In this way, the temperature at any point in the container at any instant in time is obtained. At the end of process time, when steam is shut off and cooling water is admitted to the retort, the cooling process is simulated by simply changing the boundary conditions from retort temperature to cooling temperature at the surface nodes and continuing with the computer iterations described earlier.

Salvation For The Sleep Deprived The Ultimate Guide To Sleeping, Napping, Resting And  Restoring Your Energy. Of the many things that we do just instinctively and do not give much  of a thought to, sleep is probably the most prominent one. Most of us sleep only because we have to. We sleep because we cannot stay awake all 24 hours in the day.
