Computer simulation (CS) is a powerful tool to model transport phenomena, including fluid flows motions corresponding for the momentum, mass and energy transfer. CS has been widely used to simulate the temperature distribution during thermal processing of foods. In this paper, the background of thermal processing of food and the fundamentals of developing CS models are discussed. It also provides an overview of the current CS modeling studies of thermal processing in solid, liquid and liquid-solid mixtures. It is expected that the incredible fast growth in the use of CS in the food and bioprocessing industry will encourage engineers to develop CS models with high computational powder for designing industry-scale thermal processing systems and understanding the combined effect of thermal and non-thermal processing.
