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 Gs 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...
