Heat and mass transfer can be analyzed for conditions that may limit shelf-life. With this target, the purpose of the present work is the development of a general model which is applicable to a large variety of packaging configurations, food products and environmental conditions.

To this end, COMSOL Multiphysics is exploited in a full 3D geometry.
