Abstract

The creep behavior of crushed sugarcane end-leaf (SEL) was studied, with consideration of different loading force, moisture content, and feeding amount. Statistical analysis software was used to develop and fit the regression data to a strain change law as a function of time. The four-element Burgers model was used. A further goal was to analyze the effect of different test conditions on the fitted creep characteristic parameters. The instantaneous elasticity coefficient E0 was found to increase when the loading force increased; the value of delayed elasticity coefficient E1 increased and the value of cohesion coefficient η0 decreased when the feeding amount increased; the value of delayed elasticity coefficient E1 and cohesion coefficient η0 decreased when the moisture content was increased. Therefore, the loading force, moisture content, and feeding amount of crushed SEL all affected the creep capacity of crushed SEL in compression. The results can provide substantial theoretical reference for the silage production of crushed SEL.
