Abstract.ThephysicalpropertiesofthreecommonIranianvarieties of melon seeds have been evaluated as a function of seedmoisturecontentvaryingfrom4.75to47.6,from5.02to46.81,andfrom 4.55 to 45.22% (w.b.) for Ghermez, Kolaleh and Sarakhsi,respectively. Increasing moisture content was found to increaseaxial dimensions, surface area, emptying angle of repose, bulk andtrue density, sphericity, geometric and arithmetic mean diameters,and static friction coefficient on five structural surfaces… Expand

TLDR
The results showed that the increase in the moisture content of the kenaf seeds linearly decreased the bulk density, true density and rupture force, whereas it linearly increased the length, width, thickness, arithmetic mean diameter, geometricmean diameter, sphericity, surface area, seed volume, thousand seed mass, porosity, angle of repose and terminal velocity.
