Optimization Model of Lawn Mower Blade Geometry to Attain Improved Cutting Efficiency (Published)
This paper is on the optimization models for Lawn Mower cutting blade and the power rating in driving blade geometrical configuration to the expected performance specifications. The research was tailored to developing need breed of this device that would perform under service condition with significant operational efficiency. The structural framework for coupling and installation of lawn mower is highly advanced, with the mechanics and dynamics of the cutting action when the blade is operating, to the researcher is viewed as a strong area of study. A cutting blade designed to function at an optimal level of performance would drastically improve the efficiency of cutting action with a tremendous reduction in power required to drive the system.
