This work presents the modeling of the heat transfer process in a cylindrical bin with 3.6 m of diameter and 2.2 m of height filled with corn. The model is a threedimensional and does a transient analysis of the process. The developed model simulated well the temperature variation across the corn bin. The mean relative error of the simulated product temperature was 2.2%.
