Computer aided estimation of corrugated board box compression strength. Part 2. The sensitivity analysis in selected laboratory tests of corrugated board
T.Garbowski, L.Garbowska
Polish Paper Review, Vol. 74(8), pp. 435-440, 2018
In the numerical (computer) process of determining the load-bearing capacity of corrugated board packaging, a very important step is the precise determination of thematerial parameters of the board. Because corrugated cardboard is a material characterized by high hetero…

The Sensitivity Analysis of Critical Force in Box Compression Test
T.Garbowski, G.Przybyszewski
Polish Paper Review, Vol. 71(5), pp. 275-280, 2015
The paper presents a detailed analysis of global stability of FEFCO boxes. The analysis assumed that the boxes are made of corrugated cardboard with 3 or 5 layers. The flute cross sections (fluting), due to their periodicity are homogenized (i.e. the effective parameter…
