A study of bruise damage in horticultural products

Ip, Taiwai David (2001) A study of bruise damage in horticultural products. PhD thesis, Victoria University of Technology.

Abstract

This thesis presents the results of a study of the properties of horticultural materials, in particular, it aims to identify the different physical processes associated with the dynamic loading conditions responsible for causing bruise damage to certain horticultural produce. The primary mechanisms identified as causing bruise damage include plastic/viscoplastic deformation, predominantly in soft produce, and damage instabilities associated with crisp and moderately-crisp produce.
