solids. Tsubaki and Jimbo (1984) showed that the precompressive stress, applied to achieve a desired packing density of the particle assembly, influences the apparent tensile strength because of effects of interparticle forces in addition to effects of mobile liquid bondings. Although the dense particle packing achieved in agglomeration processes must be due to free movement of the particles into a tight packing, it is assumed that interparticle forces also affect the deformability of moist agglomerates composed of irregular particles with wide size distributions.
