STUDIES ON STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS OF A GOAT BONE WITH ALTERNATIVE COMPOSITE MATERIALS
This paper deals with the design of a goat leg with exact dimensions. In order to predict the strength ofan original bone, the structural analysis has carried out to find out the mechanical properties. And also, the structural analysis has been carried out for the following composite materials: Glass/Epoxy, Carbon/Epoxy, Sisal/ Epoxy, coir/Epoxy & Hybrid (Sisal/ Coir). The mechanical properties of each composite material are compared with the original bone material. But the usage of composite material should be a healthy one for the goat. This study had been carried out for Biomimicry the human bone for replacement during accidental failure. The material should not react with the blood, muscles and other factors while retrofitting. This study provides better understandings on selection of suitable material forbone.
