The proposed and practically realized multifrequency algorithms for determining the volumetric moisture content
of liquid emulsions by the method of resonance dielcometry, taking into account parasitic parameters of MT and MG, solved the problem of <<varietal uncertainty>> of the liquids under investigation, significantly improving the metrological characteristics of the dielcometric method, and measuring the volume moisture content
of liquid nonpolar dielectrics up to [10.sup.-5].
A hygrometer is attached with it to monitor moisture contents
of seeds indirectly by measuring equilibrium RH inside the drum.
Figure 6 shows the influence of the wood moisture content
on the friction coefficient of the different friction pairs under various load conditions, samples without texture (Fig.
In order to obtain the different moisture contents
, the seeds were dried in an oven with forced air circulation at 45 [degrees]C until reaching a moisture content
of 12.06, 9.60 and 7.28% (d.b.), determined in an oven at 105 [+ or -] 3 [degrees]C for 24 h (Brasil, 2009).
For variation of moisture content
, the samples were placed in hermetic jars and distilled water of about 10% of a sample weight was pipetted to each jar.
As the moisture content
of the coal sample increases, the elastic deformation characteristics of coal samples are weakened, while the plastic deformation characteristics are enhanced correspondingly, especially in the coal sample with a moisture content
The data presented in figure 2A, which displays the mean values of compression force as a function of moisture content
(decimal db) for the various deformations, indicated that the required compression force to deform the crambe grains decreased as the moisture content
increased, and the compression force fluctuated from 1.49 to 12.09N.
This is because the effect of the moisture content
on foamed concrete plays a crucial role.
However, it is difficult to compact peat soil because of its high moisture content
and organic particles which make a slurry-like and sticky texture.
The initial moisture content
of carrot and potato was 10.61 g/g and 4.62 g/g on dry basis (d.b.), respectively.
