Effect of energy crop fineness on force of external friction

Bogusława Łapczyńska-Kordon , Jarosław Frączek , Zbigniew Ślipek


The relationships between the fineness of the selected energy crops and the force of external friction have been determined. The effects of the tests indicate a statistically significant effect of the shape aspect of shredded giant miscanthus and willow on the value of static and kinetic friction. The non-linear models proposed, which describe the variations of the friction coefficient versus the shape factor of the studied material particles, are characterised by a high fidelity of matching and can be applied for forecasting the values of external friction of shredded plant material.
