Solar radiation has been used for drying different products for thousands of years. Solar energy was the only energy used until the discovery of fossil fuels sources. These dryers are not very commercialized, and their designs are based on empirical and semi-empirical systems. Therefore, theoretical studies will be of high importance in this field. In this article, a simulation of a direct solar dryer system is developed based on the heat transfers phenomena inside and outside the dryer. This study is applied on five different products to determine instant temperatures of the product, of the internal air of the dryer and of its cover, in addition to the instant water content of the product dried. Finally, a relation between the thermal capacity of the product dried and a defined drying characteristic time will be highlighted.

Key words: Solar drying, drying characteristic time, thermal capacity.
