In this work, a two-dimensional numerical model of heat and mass transfer for the convective drying process of ceramic material was developed. The governing equations of fully coupled non-linear partial differential was derived from the most comprehensive model with considering the heat, moisture and gas transport along with the influence of microscopic pore temperature gradient. Through validation the distribution of the measured variables and coefficients (diffusivity) show a good agreement with the drying stage in porous material.
