Advances in biomechanics and mechanobiology for the diagnostic of urban trees
Over the last 3 decades, the biomechanical inputs for the analysis of urban trees have been largely developed, starting with the seminal works of Lothar Wessolly and Klaus Mattheck. As a consequence, leading experts in the diagnostic of mechanical stability and safety of urban trees are now using techniques of biomechanical engineering such as model of static wind loads on trees and/or static tension-flexion tests.
We would like to make an update and to share ideas with arboriculture experts about novel findings from the biomechanics and mechanobiology research along 3 lines directly related to tree safety: crown reconfiguration in wind, dynamics and compartmentalization of mechanical energy, long term acclimation of trees (see program).
The following exchange between scientists and expert will be on i) how to improve current biomechanical tools for the mechanical analysis of trees and ii) how we may change from punctual diagnosis to longitudinal monitoring and long-term diagnosis.
