voidage

voidage

[′vȯid·ij]
(materials)
The volume of the voids in a sample of powder divided by its overall volume (that is, the total volume occupied by the voids and the solid material).

In conclusion, the type of evolved hydrocarbons and their quantity changes with heating rate, which is a measure of the heat flux to the material, indicating either the change of the reaction mechanism or occurrence of complex and/or secondary reactions due to higher heat input to oil shale or presence of a catalyzing material, enhance chemical reactions or increase in system voidage.
The bed porosity or voidage (void fraction) is calculated by measuring the bulk density of chips and is defined as
Unlike other studies, here is included the voidage time derivative among the independent constitutive variables.
It is to be noted that, in the above models, the global operating conditions are used to deduce the correlation between drag coefficient and voidage (or bed height), which neglect the effect of local information on the drag coefficient.
Properties such as size, thickness, superficial texture, and shape, which are usually not uniform for biological particulates, are key factors in defining packed-bed properties such as permeability, local voidage and bulk density.
