The possibility for a reduction of the time duration of an industrial drying of ceramic bricks are analysed based on numerical simulation of the transient coupled mass transfer and mechanical processes in the material. The differences between the local mechanical stresses and strength in the dried bodies are computed and used as a criterion for this possibility. Ways for reorganization of the existing process parameters in the dryers to achieve the corrected drying kinetic curve are discussed. The expected effects on the efficiency of the drying installation are evaluated via material and thermal balance.
