Abstract

Garlic is nature's most versatile medicinal plant and it is primarily used as a flavoring agent in cooking. It is the second most important spice after the onion. The physical parameter of garlic performs a crucial role in context designing of conveying systems and metering units. This research was carried out in the department of Farm Machinery and Power Engineering, SHUATS, Prayagraj, U.P.  The prime aim of study was to evaluate the physical and engineering parameters of garlic cloves. The physical parameters garlic cloves found in terms of average length, width, thickness, Geometric mean diameter, sphericity and bulk density were 27.78 mm, 11.60 mm, 9.26 mm, 14.23 mm, 0.52 and 554 to 592 kg/m3. The weight of thousand garlic clove was found as 1540.5g. The Angle of repose for garlic clove was found as 45.6 and 36.8o for wood and G.I. sheet.

Keywords: Garlic clove, physical and engineering parameter, bulk density
