This paper peresents a mathematical model for the thin layer drying of the Viliamz cultivar of soybean. The thin layer drying behaviour of soybean was experimentally investigated and the mathematical modelling performed by using thin layer drying models provided in the literature. Experiments were conducted at inlet drying air temperatures of 30, 40, 50, 60 and 70ºC and at a fixed drying air velocity of 1 m s-1. Thirteen different thin layer mathematical drying models were compared according to their r values, RMSE, 2 and EF by non-linear regression analysis. The effect of drying air temperature on the model constants and coefficients was predicted using multiple regression analysis. According to the results, the Midilli et al. model was found to be the best mathematical equation for modelling thin layer drying of soybean.
