To characterize the heating behavior of canned particulates in this retort, the researchers filled the cans with a single nylon particle, in an unlimited heat transfer condition, in glycerin, and processed it under different operating temperatures: 110 C and 130 C; at from 0 to 240 reciprocations per minute; and at different amplitudes ranging from 0 cm to 25 cm.
While other work, by Testart (1998), Laidlaw (2000), Hyde (2006), and Hird (2010), for example, has questioned the nexus between gift and reciprocation (on the basis that a gift is not a gift if it depends on reciprocation), Mauss's underlying theorisation of the gift relationship is now well accepted, although we argue in this paper that it has considerable potential for further development in order to theorise nature-society relations.
