Maximum allowable static and dynamic loads and effect of temperature for mechanical injury in apples

, : Maximum allowable static and dynamic loads and effect of temperature for mechanical injury in apples. J. agric. Engng Res, 13: 305-17. bibl. 12

Static loading and impact tests were conducted on Mclntosh apples at 40 degrees and 90 degrees F. and the results were assessed in terms of the resulting bruise volume. At the higher temperature apples were more resistant to static bruising but less resistant to impact bruising than at the lower temperature. From an assessment of the forces operating on apples in bulk bins it is concluded that a depth of approximately 3.5 ft. is acceptable.

Ephemeral gully erosion is considered to be driven by convergent surface flow while the role of subsurface flow is often overlooked. This study sought to characterize and quantify the soil erosion mechanisms associated with ephemeral gully erosion...

The main function attributed to B cells is the antibody production involved in humoral immune response. On the other hand activated B cells can serve as antigen presenting cells for CD4+ T lymphocytes, which by secreting cytokines control the proc...
