Abstract [en]

Misalignment of corrugated boxes stacked on top of each other, on for example a pallet, considerably reduces the strength and life time of the boxes. The development of analytical tools for prediction of the influence of misalignments on the stacking strength would therefore be of large practical importance. In order to develop such tools, it is important to know the pressure distribution between misaligned boxes.


This paper reports on a preliminary study using a pressure sensitive film to determine the pressure distribution between boxes. A parametric study using filled (90 %) and unfilled corrugated boxes has been performed and the pressure distributions will be presented as functions of the stacking load and parameters describing the misalignment.
