Analyzing behaviour of thin-walled tubes under loading
Evaluation of structurally defective trees with very thin trunk shell walls.
For mature trees that have stopped growing in height, the shell wall radius rule (T/r less than 33% is unstable) is not relevant. Mature trees growing outwards can be very safe even when the shell-wall thickness is very thin. The TurboCalc™ software helps to understand and explain when these trees, which are often significant heritage or veteran trees, are approaching critical structural stability limits.
