On Design and Analysis of Damping Physiognomies of Reinforced Composite Loofah Sponge on Athlete’s Shoe

Theddeus AKANO [1] , Isah SUBERU [2]


In this paper, the vibration damping characteristic of reinforced composite loofah sponge as mid-sole, for running shoes was modelled and analysed. The reinforced composite loofah sponge was used as mid-sole for running shoes for effective and critical vibration damping to prevent knees and ankles injuries while running. The dried loofah sponge was treated with aqueous sodium hydroxide, while matrix was applied to enhance its Young’s modulus and loss factor. Dynamic impact vibration test, compression test, low cyclic fatigue (LCF) and high cyclic fatigue (HCF) test were carried out, and the results were analysed. The results depicted that the mid-sole is an excellent vibration damper with high durability.
