Table 4 Each input parameter (i.e., factor) and value of each input parameter (i.e., level) for the finite element analyses

From: The effect of plant weight on estimations of stalk lodging resistance

Value E (N/mm2) I (mm4) h1 (mm) h2 (mm) h3 (mm) M (Nmm) W (N) F (N)

  1. The number of levels for each factor noted as (n) is presented in the bottom row of the table. The force (F) had 6 levels (0, 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10 N). All other factors had 2 levels (a maximum value and a minimum value). A total of 768 finite element models were evaluated (2E’s × 2I’s × 2h1’s × 2h2’s × 2h3’s × 2 M’s × 2 W’s × 6F’s = 768 models)
