The flow properties of DDGS (including cohesion, effective angle of friction, internal angle of friction, yield locus, flow function, major consolidating stress, and unconfined yield strength) have been studied using the Jenike shear tester.
b] is the angle of friction between the joint surfaces shifting across one another, i is the asperity angle (see Figure 1) - deflection of friction surface forced by the displacement, resulting from the uneven surface, [[phi].
2009) argued that the constant retarding stress would be the result of an increase in the angle of friction towards the surface of the flows.
In order to calculate angle of friction and cohesive strength based on Mohr-Coulomb failure criterion, it is necessary to calculate and estimate the concerning parameters for different levels of stresses, because this methodology promote the concise calculation of rock mass strength.
The angle of internal friction and the angle of friction on the wall material increase with an increase in the moisture content of grain, while the bulk density decreases or increases depending on the pressure level.
