The treatment variable, TTM (kg/m), varied by increasing the tunnel run time while maintaining a constant rate of introduced abrader. All treatment runs were performed with the tunnel aligned parallel to the plant rows to reduce the influence of surface roughness caused by the sowing ridges.
Material caught in the catchers was passed through a 0.297-mm (0.012-in) sieve with finger pressure to assure that any soil aggregates were broken, and the amounts of abrader and soil were determined by weighing.
The tool/handle with a round cross-section might be an abrader, or handle of a chisel or pestle.
The abrasion testing was performed using an angle abrader, as shown in figure 2.
Porites coral abraders were also common and probably used in fishhook manufacture (see Allen 1992; Rolett and Conte 1995:218,220).
Therefore, it is essential for the rubber components to have the right balance of tear strength (related to impact abrasion resistance) and sliding abrasion resistance (as measured on a DIN abrader).
Uncured specimens for the drum abrader, flexometer and Zwick rebound tests were prepared by cutting disks from flat sheets and plying up sufficient layers to fill the cavities in multi-cavity molds for curing.

Wear attrition was determined according to BS903A9 by using an Akron Abrader machine (MN-74).

The DIN 2200 abrader features a digital speed adjustment and test timer for more detailed and accurate testing.
