Wood pellets are referred to as a clean renewable fuel and considered as one of the perspective substitute for fossil fuels. In order to successfully exploit the potential of this resource, it is necessary to determine the factors that make its use environmentally friendly, energy-efficient, sustainable and economically justified. In the first part...

Chapter
As Serbia is currently dependent almost entirely on its own forest resources, consumption of raw wood biomass, for all purposes, should be limited within current boundaries, about 9,000,000 m³. This situation requires from the wood processing industry to be responsible for the raw material and to reduce energy consumption and environmental pollutio...

In this paper elaborates the process of measuring cutting power which occurred during cutting six types of particle board. Chipboards with different physical and mechanical properties were cut in order to find some correlation with the cutting power ie to be able to determine the effect of moisture, density and bending strength of the plate to the...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The differential equation of the tire-road contact sliding speed is presented in the paper. It is based on the equations of: normal pressure distribution in contact, available friction and tangential stress within the tire-road contact. Solving this equation makes it possible to calculate the sliding speed and available friction within the contact...
