Impact testing of navy bean pods
Adam, Nor Mariah and Burkhardt, T. H. (1986) Impact testing of navy bean pods. In: 1986 Summer Meeting American Society of Agriculture Engineers, 29 June - 2 July 1986, California Polytechnic Institute, San Luis Obispo, California.
A pendulum system was developed for impacting navy bean pods. Impulse, maximum impact force and energy absorbed to shatter pods were measured. Impulse is the most suitable parameter to characterize impact resistance because it is independent of variety, time of harvest and pendulum release angle.
