Abstract:

For the design of equipment for harvesting, grading, cleaning, sorting, separation and packaging, the engineering properties of groundnut is essential. The aim of this investigation to study the main physical and mechanical properties of groundnut pod (GG-20 variety). Some of the engineering properties, such as weight, size, shape, angle of repose, bulk density, coefficient of friction and terminal velocity were determined. The properties of selected groundnut variety i.e. GG-20 pod observed in terms of equivalent diameter, sphericity, bulk density, angle of repose, coefficient of friction and terminal velocity were 16.66 mm, 0.55, 0.286 g/cc, 24˚, 0.035 and 10.27 m/s, respectively.
