In this paper we present the solution of the inverse problem of simultaneously estimating the heat and mass transfer coefficients at the surface of a drying one-dimensional body. The physical problem is formulated in terms of the linear Luikov equations and the unknown functions are time dependent. The inverse problem is solved by using the conjugate gradient method of function estimation with adjoint problem. Results are presented for the estimation of discontinuous functions by using simulated measurements of local temperature, local moisture content and/or total moisture weight. The main objective of the paper is to examine the effects of different types of measurements on the inverse problem solution.
