    Author(s): Syed IR, Sukhcharn S and Saxena DCSyed IR, Sukhcharn S and Saxena DC

    An investigation was carried out on the physical and compositional properties of Horse Chestnut seeds found in Kashmir valley, India. Physical properties such as seed shape and size, geometric and arithmetic mean diameter, sphericity, aspect ratio, bulk and true density, density ratio, porosity, angle of repose and static friction coefficient were determined. The average seed length, width and thickness were 4.7, 4.0 and 3.2 cm, respectively. Geometric and arithmetic mean diameter was 3.92 and 3.97 cm. Average sphericity and aspect ratio was 83.4 and 85.11%, respectively. The average true density, bulk density, density ratio and porosity of the variety was 1072 g/cm3, 518 g/ cm3, 48.32% and 51.68%, respectively. The mechanical property viz., angle of repose values obtained on plywood, mild steel, stainless steel and galvanized sheet were 22.3°, 20.3&de.. Read More»
