Abstract

Dynamic forces which act on fruit inside a bulk bin of apples have been studied for orchard transport (1.3-km track), using an array of 10 prototype low-profile force sensors placed on the base of the orchard bins. Five bulkbin designs (one hardwood, one plywood, and three plastic bins) were assessed using long and short tyned tractor mounted forks. Gradeout of U.S. Extra Fancy was similar for most of the bins irrespective of the fork length used. Average forces on individual fruit ranged from 2-60 N and peak forces as high as 130 N were recorded. Correlation of the cumulated number of shockforce events with damage showed a strong relationship for only half the runs. One run recorded significantly higher levels of damage and it was clearly associated with a single high shock force event recorded by the sensors.
