Analytical Solutions for Tomato Peeling withCombined Heat Flux and Convective Boundary Conditions

Radiative heating is a viable alternative to steam or lye, which are both expensive and polluting ways for peeling tomatoes. In order to realise short-time operations using only a tiny layer underneath the tomato surface, suitable energy densities are necessary. The goal of this study is to forecast the temperature field in rotating tomatoes that…
