  • Abstract:

    Various methods to characterize powder flow has been used, including (1) angle of repose [AOR], Carr's index [%C], Hausner ratio and critical orifice diameter [COD]. The COD is defined as the smallest opening through which a powder will flow under the influence of gravity. Taylor et al. (2000) suggested a composite index [CI], which integrates..
