P]) and initial water content
as a function of the smectite percentage and (h) the void ratio as a function of the vertical stress in oedometer tests.
In which Pf is the final mass of the sample (g); Pi is the initial mass of the sample (g); Tai is the initial water content
of achenes (% w.
The demands of consolidated drained test are 20% of initial water content
Moreover, it can be found that the apparent viscosity of cellulose spinning dopes prepared by the two-step dissolving process decreased with the increase of the initial water content
in aqueous [BMIM]CI solution.
Although there was a slight difference in initial water content
Parlange (1975) demonstrated that, for homogeneous, uniform initial water content
and infinite soil column length, S could be defined as:
2002), the parameter n in the Page model depends on the drying air speed and initial water content
of the product and k depends on temperature and initial water content
Some researchers concluded that although the swelling decrease with an increase of the initial water content
, the swelling pressure was independent of initial water content
but strongly dependent on the initial dry density and vertical pressure [5, 6].
Sieved topsoil with an initial water content
To minimize the variability of the initial water content
, seeds were equilibrated at 55% relative humidity over a saturated solution of [Mg([NO.
Therefore, the drop in the final molecular weight can be much more significant for a larger starting molecular weight than a smaller starting molecular weight for the same initial water content
, as shown in Fig.
The initial water content
of the coffee beans was determined through gravimetry using a forced-air circulation oven at 105 [+ or -] 1[degrees]C for 24 h (Brasil, 2009) in triplicate.
