Some mechanical characteristics of apples


, : Some mechanical characteristics of apples. Sbornik UVTIZ, Zahradnictvi 17(4): 263-274

The results of 3-year studies on the mechanical properties of the flesh and peel of 9 cultivars are summarized. Thickness, dry matter and fibre contents, and shear resistance were determined for the peel, and dry matter and fibre contents, cell size, intercellular space, resistance to penetration, firmness, theoretical modulus of elasticity and penetration depth were studied for the flesh.

The optic nerves, tracts, and tecta of goldfish, 1 to 5 years old, have been studied anatomically using light and electron microscopy, horseradish peroxidase (HRP), and tritiated proline radioautography. The aims were to document an earlier infere...
