Some algebraic explicit analytical solutions of the unsteady one-dimensional variable coefficient partial differential equation set describing drying process of an infinite plate are derived and given. Such explicit solutions have not yet been published before. Besides their irreplaceable theoretical value, analytical solutions can also serve as benchmark to check the results of recently rapidly developing numerical calculation and study various computational methods. In addition, some mathematical skills used in this paper are special and deserve further attention.
