    . The objective of this research was to propose and validate a two dimensional mathematical model based on the continuous theory to describe the temperature distribution inside a soybean silo. The phenomenon of solar radiationsolar radiationSubject Category: Miscellaneous

    was included in the modeling in detail. The mathematical model was solved using the finite differences method. Model validation was made from experimental temperatures obtained in a model soybean silo. The average error between calculated and measured temperatures inside the silo was lower than 6.3%. Moisture content of grains was predicted from the proposed modeling and the obtained estimates were in accord to literature.
