Simulation of Huangguan Pear Vibration Damage during Transportation


Article Preview

With the economic development and the improvement of living standards, the demands for the excellent quality fruits grow quickly, while fresh fruits are restricted by the region and season, transportation plays an important role in it. Vibration causes fruits mechanical and physical damage during transportation and affects the fruits storage characteristics and sales. This paper selects Huangguan pear as the research object, using frequency spectral density curve simulates the vibration damage condition of the Huangguan pears in cartons during the actual transportation. Through the simulation results analyze the damage level under the conditions of different packaging forms and different situations and different stacking, and then analyze the relationship of the vibration damage and the other factors. Finally the paper puts forward the Huangguan pear packaging improvements.
