It is believed that key factors include materials with a relatively high poured bulk density and co-efficient of friction.
Transportation by truck-trailer is a large portion of the total delivered cost of comminuted forest harvest residues, and the load quantity is dependent on the moisture content and dry bulk density of the residues.
