Centrifugal fertiliser spreading: velocity and mass flow distribution measurement by image processing


This paper investigates the use of a new imaging system to measure the velocity and the mass flow distribution of fertiliser granules spread by a centrifugal device. The new acquisition system consists of a digital camera placed above the disc so that its view axis corresponds to the disc axle. This provides useful geometrical properties to develop a simple… (More)
