The statistical approach to the thermal neutron radiography picture analysis is applied to evaluation of the experimental results obtained for drying of rectangular and cylindrical samples of granulated and rigid porous materials. We have shown that the time dependence of the standard deviation of image brightness reflects the appearance and motion of the drying front observed during second period of the drying process. The results are discussed within a simple two-region model of the drying sample image.
