This paper focuses on the CFD studies on one of the commonly used drying processes for different applications. First, a brief information about drying is given with determining important properties that effect drying characteristics. Next, basic principles of CFD modelling are explained while capabilities of computational processing are presented. A detailed literature survey about CFD studies in convective drying process is then conducted. Finally, some sound concluding remarks are listed. It may be concluded that the CFD is a powerful and flexible tool that can be adopted to many different physical situations including complex scenarios, results of CFD simulations represent good predictions for fluid-flow, heat and mass transfer of various drying methods and those numerical studies can be used for validation and controlling of applicability of new drying systems..
