ABSTRACT
In this study specific heat, thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity of rapeseed (Brasicca napus L.) were determined at different moisture contents. Also, effects of change in moisture content of the product on these thermal properties were investigated. In these measurements conducted in the moisture content range of 7.31%-37.6%, specific heat, thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity of rapeseed ranged from 2.10 to 3.12 kJ/kg K, from 0.214 to 0.292 W/m K and from 1.486 x 10-7 to 1.633 x 10-7, respectively. While specific heat and thermal conductivity of rapeseed drastically increased with increasing moisture content, no significant relation was determined between moisture content and thermal diffusivity.
