As expected, higher moisture resulted in an increase in the average individual weight, 1000-bean weight, particle density, porosity, angle of repose
, coefficient of friction and a decreased effect in bulk density.
CDF3 has proven to be the superior amongst all the prepared formulations with least value of angle of repose
(25.32+-0.58) falling in the category of excellent flow-ability.
The angle of repose
for biomass is an important indicator of flowability.
The flow properties of agglomerates were determined in terms of angle of repose
, bulk density, tapped density, Carr's index, and Hausner's ratio.
* The angle of repose
in powder or granulate (Figure 3) samples is not as expected.
Angle of Repose
by Wallace Stegner would make an amazing movie, if done well.
Typical bodies are designed around a single angle of repose
, or the angle of maximum slope at which a heap of any solid material will stand without sliding over itself.
Common beans bulk density, angle of repose
, and porosity properties have influence on air and mass flow resistance and therefore key parameters in the prediction of structural loads for storage structures [21-24].
Flow properties of the products were estimated by means of the Hausner ratio, Carr's index [14, 23], and the static angle of repose
The free-flowing characteristics can usually be estimated by the angle of repose
and by passing the material through a large funnel.
We were glad to glimpse that giant dune familiar from our start, its angle of repose
our final frontier on this dunescape adventure.
According to (1), depth (h) and angle of repose
(a) are the two main parameters of the barchan dune model.
