Topic: A Review of Some Physical and Mechanical Properties of Cassava Related to Harvesting and Processing Machines
Abstract: For many years now, harvesting of cassava is difficult because there has not been a well-designed machine to harvest, separate, and convey the crop in a one-time operation. This means that the harvesting of the crop is labor-intensive and partially mechanized. In all the unit operations in cassava production, several machines and types of equipment have been mechanized successfully. However, cassava harvesting and peeling have remained a serious global challenge to engineers involved in machine design.
In light of this, some pieces of literature on the physical and mechanical properties of cassava were reviewed and the study parameters were highlighted qualitatively. This review also presents the harvesting methods for cassava around the globe, considering its merits and limitations for future development.
We found out that cutting shear stress and force increased with increasing cassava tuber age because of an increase in density and starch content. Additionally, the proportion of peel in cassava roots ranges from 0.106 to 0.215. The frictional properties of cassava are essential in the design and development of machines for post-harvest operations of cassava roots. Furthermore, the angle of repose of unpeeled cassava is required for the design of the hopper and that of the peeled is required for the design of the chute. In terms of capacity, manual, semi-manual and fully mechanized harvesting options require about 22-51 man h/ha, 16-45 man h/ha, and 1-4 man h/ha respectively. The fully mechanized method is very efficient, and the field is plowed alongside harvesting which saves time, fuel, and cost of operation.
Even though less research is carried out on cassava harvesting mechanization compared to other crops, the current development is a harvesting machine hitched to a tractor with a conveyor unit powered by the PTO system. The knowledge of this review would be a blueprint for engineers in designing cassava mechanical harvesters.
