Carton board packages subjected to concentrated loads near the edges are damaged in a characteristic way. This paper reports an attempt to simulate the damage process in the lab and Package Collapse Loads measured for this load case.
Packages were compressed by a concentrated load. The position of load application was varied along a line parallel to a crease and the package was rotated in order to test the influence of the height of the load carrying panel. Force and displacement were recorded and the damage evolution during the test was studied. The damage produced was examined using x-ray tomography. The nature of damage at different stages of damage evolution was studied.
Both the visual appearance of the damage and the force-displacement curve were similar in all tests. The Package Collapse Load has little dependence on where along a line parallel to a crease of the package the point load is applied. Damage started developing at the crease and a yield line perpendicular to the crease and parallel to the direction of the load developed. When the displacement increased further, a parabolic yield line, symmetric around the previous one, developed. The start of the damage development was associated with at peak in the force-displacement curve. Stiffness was more geometry dependent than strength. On macro scale, the visual appearance of the damage due to concentrated loads shows no significant dependence on geometry.
