Investigating Biomechanical Properties of A. tortilis as Related to their Habitat
The biomechanical properties of Acacia tortilis were investigated considering its habitat (wild vs. nursery). The plant materials were collected from partially urbanized area in Doha city and from Qatar Foundation Nursery. The results show that Acacia grown in field are more flexible than those grown in nursery. Young's Modulus of Elasticity was found to be 191 MPa and 617 MPa and the Flexural Modulus was found to be 49 MPa and 575 MPa and the breaking force was found to be 210 and 550 N fordoi:10.1101/601534 fatcat:qi4a3ntcjvbplecblc3a6izjgu
