Abstract: This paper presents the full development of a segregated finite element method to solve convection-diffusion problems. The deloped scheme allows solving the incompressible, steady-state Navier-Stokes equations and convective-diffusive problems with temperature and moisture dependent properties. The problem of simultaneous energy, momentum and species transfer along an infinite horizontal cylinder under drying conditions in forced convection is presented, considering conditions normally found in biological material thermal treatment or drying. Numerical results for Nussel and Sherwood numbers were compared against available empirical expressions; the results agreed within the associated experimental errors. For high rate mass transport processes, the proposed methodology allows to simulate drying conditions involving wall convective mass flux by a simple inclusion of the appropriated boundary conditions.
