Finite difference model and dynamic thermal property evaluation system were developed to estimate convection heat transfer coefficient by modeling temperature-time profile of beef cube in continuous flow sterilizing system. As input parameters of the model, specific heat and thermal conductivity values of beef frankfurter meat were independently measured from 20 to 80oC. Convection heat transfer coefficient was estimated by comparing simulated and measured temperature-time profiles. Actual temperature-time profiles of meat cube were measured at flow rates of 15, 30, and 45 L/min and viscosities from 0 to 15 cp, and mean values of convection heat transfer coefficients ranged from 792 to 2107 W/m2?K. Convection heat transfer coefficient increased with increase in flow rate and decreased as viscosity increased.
