A literature survey of published single-droplet drying models has exposed their various shortcomings. An advanced theoretical model of drying of single droplets, containing either insoluble or dissolved solids, has been developed and numerically solved. The validation of the developed model has been accomplished by comparison of the predicted temperature and mass histories with published experimental data for slurries of silica and skim milk solution under different conditions. The results of simulations showed a good agreement between the calculated curves and experimental points in all case studies.
