Title : Distribution of surface pressure of avocado fruit at impact loads
Key words : surface pressure, avocado, impact load
Summary :

The paper presents the results of measurements of surface pressure of Fuerte avocado with the use of Tekscan system in impact loading conditions were presented. Contour lines of thrusts for two variants of loading which differ with speed and energy in the moment of crash were determined. Average values measured during the test were determined and statistical analysis was carried out for them. It was determined that the increase of speed and energy results in the increase of value of the maximum surface pressure but does not influence significantly their distribution on the resistance surface. It was proved that in the central area of contact mainly elastic strains appeared at the lack of plastic strains of tissue.
