A finite element model for investigating effects of aerial architecture on tree oscillations
A finite element model was developed to study the influence of aerial architecture on the structural dynamics of trees. The model combines a complete description of the axes of the aerial architecture of the plant with numerical techniques suitable for dynamic nonlinear analyses. Trees were modeled on the basis of morphological measurements that were previously made on three 4-year-old Pinus pinaster Ait. saplings originating from even-aged stands. Calculated and measured oscillations weredoi:10.1093/treephys/26.6.799 pmid:16510396 fatcat:adlmunk3sbc6hkq2jfqd6iic64
