Abstract

Moisture diffusion into stacks of grain in sacks in tropical climates was studied. Wheat was used for a laboratory trial in simulated humid conditions, and millet and milled rice stacks were examined in warehouses in savannah and hot humid climates respectively. The measured moisture ingress profiles generally agreed with the predictions of a theory of isothermal moisture diffusion.
