Food Properties Characterization

Research involves concept in physical and engineering properties of food and biomaterials, i.e., physical characteristics, surface, functional, phase transition, mechanical, thermal, electrical and optical properties. Examples of some research work are the following.

  • Design and development of mango sorter with machine vision system (Patent No. 22004)
  • Image analysis of food
  • Mathematical modeling and Artificial Neural Network (ANN) for estimation of physical characteristics of food
  • Thermophysical properties of food
  • Rheological properties of food
  • Dielectric properties of food
  • Non-destructive measurement of food quality
