In this work are presented experimental results of the drying kinetics for a solid that shrinks between 88% and 94% in volume during the drying process depending on the drying temperature. The drying process is modeled and simulated as an isothermal diffusional process taking in account the shrinkage of the dried material. Two falling-rate drying periods were considered in the drying process. Diffusion-moisture content relationships were determined for each drying period at each of the
