Unformatted text preview: Which point of will have the greatest impact? Add video… IMG_0110.MOV The answer is… The first point where the IRD drops from one part of the packing line to turn the corner has the greatest impact Testing Perform the same test on each IRD ex: roll each device off of 7 5/8 in. cinder block View Data: look for consistency and accuracy Perform tests on several surfaces ex: drop onto padded surface on packing line and wood deck Results The PCIRD program showed the velocity and G’s of each impact It also put this data into graphs showing the damage threshold for a specific crop This meant that if the produce experienced an impact that was higher than the line, it would be damaged at that point on the packing line. For Example: Insert chart here More Results Conclusion...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
