Item Type: Student Project Report
Additional Information: Cookability is a parameter that decides the quality of a pulse. Current practice at C.F.T.R.I involves determining cookability using a dhal pressing unit which compresses a cooked pulse under impact loading and subsequent measurement of spread area is done using a planimeter. The project work is concentrated on design, fabrication and testing of a pulse compressing unit that applies a known load gradually on a cooked pulse and development of a software program to measure the spread area of the compressed pulse to obtain spread area which is a measure of cookability. The results obtained ensure gradual descent. Further, measurement of spread area using the developed program has given reasonably good results.
