Abstract:

During transportation, stacked corrugated containers receive dynamic loading forces from vibration which, added to the weight of the stacked load, may cause failure of the lower containers in the stack. The study, in cooperation with the Fibre Box Association, experimentally verified that top-loaded containers are frequency-sensitive systems with resonant frequencies ranging from 8.4 to 18.2 cycles per second. Transmissibility amplication ratios as high as 6.7 were found at resonance, with a representative value of system damping of 0.115. These resonant responses occur within the range of frequencies likely to be present in common carrier transportation vehicles. Thus consideration must be given to these dynamic effects when selecting or designing corrugated containers. Author
