Description: This paper is concerned with pressure-density behaviour of wheat, barleyandrice strawsof differentmoisture contents duringcompres sion in a cylindrical die. Values of compressive pressure, reaction pressure and lateral pressure against compressed density (i.e. wafer density under pressure in die) have been obtained by experiment. A three-parameter model (Bailey et al. 1986) has been fitted to the relationship between the compressive pressure and the compressed density. The model properly represents the pressure versus density relationship andreflects structural changes of thestraw sample during compaction. Thepressure ratio kandthecoefficient of wall friction \i havebeenmeasured and analyzed as a function of the densityandthe moisture content of the straw sample.
