Experimental determination of the angle of repose of granular agricultural materials

Experimental determination of the angle of repose of granular agricultural materials

International Agrophysics 4(1-2): 99-114

The development and design of equipment for measuring the angle of repose of various agricultural materials (grain, melon seed, sandy clay soil, fertilizer and poultry feed) are discussed. Relationships between angle of repose, particle size, specific gravity and m.c. were determined, regression coeff. were calculated and error analysis performed. Angle of repose, specific gravity and particle size of grain and melon increased as a function of m.c.
