Physical properties of cattle dung

Author(s):
Akash Lima and Dr. VM Victor
Abstract:
The physical properties of the available cattle dung were determined. The moisture content of the available cattle dung was found to range between 71 to 78% approximately. The total solids concentration is determined to be between 19 and 24%, with a moisture level of 71 to 78%. The bulk density of the cattle dung, which weighed around 1.02 to 1.04 kg and had a TS level ranging from 20 to 27%, ranged from 1009 to 1030 kg/m3. The static coefficient of friction of dung samples dried in the sun for five days was determined to be between 0.69 and 0.81. The static coefficient of friction of dung samples dried around 20%, 30%, and 40% was 0.79, 0.73, and 0.712, respectively. The dynamic viscosity of the fresh cattle dung sample having different dung and water ratios as 1:1, 1:0.75, 1:0.50, 1:0.25, 1:0 was 184, 922, 1260, 3280, 5890 mPa·s, respectively.
