- ‘Mixed together with oxidisers, these compounds combust by producing small explosions or ‘decrepitation’ at the surface of the burning mixture.’
- ‘In this work, the decrepitation process was examined with regard to mechanical properties and microstructure.’
- ‘The only condition where decrepitation might take place is in the low temperature, high strain metamorphic environment.’
- ‘Pellets with Portland cement, after drying, did not present decrepitation, showing a correlation between the decrepitation, moisture content and mechanical strength of the pellet.’
