Analysis of Deckboards for strength and environmental shade.
An innovative deckboard design is highly slotted of an environmentally friendly material is tested for strength and environmental impact to casting a shadow that affects the shade.
The product is analyzed for bending from a simulated person standing in the worst-case center to evaluate the maximum stresses and deflection.
A second analysis is simulated for thermal expansion from extreme outdoor temperature conditions.
A third analysis is a simulated drop test to evaluate the stresses for general handling.
A fourth analysis calculates the illumination below the installed product for a various heights. There is not an acceptance criterion.
