The Influence of Position of Durian in Determination of Ripeness of Durian Non-Destrucyively by Ultrasonic Wave

Bambang Haryanto, I Wayan Budiastra, Amoranto Trisnobudi


The study was conducted to assess the influence of durian 's position toward transmission properties of ultrasonic wave for determination of the fruit ripeness using non-destructiive technique. Three ripe and unripe durian were used to assess transmittance wave that was passed the durian. The measurement was conducted at 3 peak and valley positions and it was repeated 20 times. The result showed that position durian 's inJluenccad the
transmissions of ultrasonic wave. Mo mzJ a (attenuation) values can be used as indicator for durian ripeness. Ripe durian tends to have highera value than unripe durian.
