Recycled Plastic Composite Rod-Based Design of Fasteners in the Simplified Greenhouse

Abstract—The purpose of this study is to design fasteners of the simplified greenhouse by using rods made by recycled composite materials. The design process was composed of drawing the 3D model of the fastener and simulating torsion and tension forces caused by the 11-level wind to determine whether the strength of the designed fastener was sufficient. During the analysis, it was found that the material of stainless steel could increase the joint strength of the overall simple green house structure, which compensated the lack of strength of the rods. There was only a slight displacement and deformation at the joint of the fastener and the extent of deformation and displacement was insufficient to induce the fracture of the rods. Therefore, the designed fastener was able to tolerate most of the wind in the real world. The results of this study will contribute to the application and promotion of using rods made by recycled composite materials in the simplified greenhouse.

Index Terms—Fastener, simplified greenhouse, recycled composite material.
