Contact drying process has gained wide application in different industries including paper, ceramics and construction industries. Suitable control over temperature distribution will result in required moisture content and its distribution. In the present study, governing equations for a porous sheet are derived using Luikov equation. These equations are then converted into sturm-liouville equations and solved simultaneously. Comparison of temperature and moisture distributions with numerical data shows a close agreement.
