This review is a brief account of R& D results generated from drying behavior of carpets. First of all, the mathematical relations are reviewed and then, they are developed in detail, which may be used to describe the moisture sorption mechanisms of carpet. The effect of important parameters during the drying process are discussed and the mathematical relations are formulated to illustrate the range of their applications. However, challenges remain to be overcome through innovations, R& D investigations and advanced engineering, especially in designing process control devices.
