The overall effective thermal resistance of a corrugated fiberboard container was determined as a function of air velocity and board thickness, and an appropriate design curve is presented. The thermal resistance of the container is treated as a sum of resistances, with individual resistance values presented for the interior interfacial contact resistance, the board resistance, and the exterior boundary resistance. Behavioral differences were found for heating versus cooling at conventional board thicknesses and a possible explanation for this behavior is presented. Author
