Characteristics of Afzelia africana Seed under Compressive Loading: An Empirical Study

Using a Monsanto Tensometer, Afzelia africana seeds were subjected to a quasi-static parallel plate compression test. At four different moisture content levels of 10.6 percent, 12.8 percent, 15.2 percent, and 18.4 percent wet basis, the loading orientations were horizontal, vertical, and edge-to-edge (wb). At different moisture contents ranging from 10.6 percent to 18.4 percent, slight…
