Abstract:

A dynamic compression testing system, consisting essentially of a pendulum, abutment, and electronic recording equipment, was built by the Laboratory for testing package cushioning materials. The tests simulate the loading of an item in a cushioned package when the package is impacted. The characteristics, limitations, and theoretical aspects of each component of the instrumentation are presented in detail, particularly in regard to acceleration measurements. The recording equipment is also suitable for measurements of dynamic loads and strains. Author
