Engineering properties of basmati-370
Author(s): Neeraj Singh Parihar, Vinay Kumar and Ankit
Abstract: The knowledge about morphological and engineering properties of an agricultural grain is important in order to develop different parts of farm machinery. The understanding of these properties also proves useful in developing an ergonomically fit machine. In the present study, some of the engineering properties such as size, volume, surface area, angle of repose, porosity, etc. of raw paddy (variety Basmati-370) are discussed briefly. At moisture content of 13-16 % (w.b.), the average grain length, width and thickness were 9.55, 2.05 and 1.89 mm respectively. The sphericity and aspect ratio were 34.93 and 0.22 %, respectively.
