The Influence of Size Distribution on the Bulk Density of Uniformly Packed Glass Particles1

  1. W. J. Staple2

Abstract

Abstract

The theory of Westman and Hugill was used to predict the bulk density of uniformly packed mixtures of different sizes of glass beads. The density of packing depended on the number, the concentration, and the diameter ratio of the size components making up the mixture. Agreement between theory and experiment was good for binary mixtures but became less precise as the number of size components increased.
