Abstract:

In this study, the behaviour of strain energy as influenced by moisture content, preheating temperature, and loading rate on African nutmeg seed during cracking was investigated. Using nonlinear regression analysis, empirical models were developed and validated; and these models compared favorably with the experimental data. Furthermore, an analysis of variance indicated that, all three independent variables had a main significant effect on strain energy at 95% confidence level. Therefore, for effective energy utilization and optimum quality assurance, 14% moisture content and 100oC preheating temperature of the seeds at a loading rate of 2.5 mm/min is recommended.
