Design and Optimization of Mangalore Clay Roofing Tile
RL. Sarathraj | AK. Somayaji
Abstract: Mangalore tiles had worldwide reputation. But now a days these industries are getting in to closure states owing to the several reasons. One of the prominent reasons may be short supply of exhaustible raw material i. e. clay. With the introduction of decorative tiles, these products are slowly getting the due market share. The application area of the clay roofing tiles are expanded now as they can be used to lay over the RCC building to prevent the building from overheating. These tiles are the best strategies to counter the seepage problem of RCC building during rainy season. In this investigation an attempt is made to study and analyze the Mangalore clay roofing tiles using SolidWorks software model and validating it with Ansys workbench. First we make the model of tile using SolidWorks software after that analyze this model using Ansys Workbench software considering different load parameters. The possible outcome of the project is stress distribution over the tile. The main objective of this study is checking the possibility of saving exhaustible material clay through redesign the model. The re designed model again analyzes using the same load parameters.
