Shock Absorbing Characteristics and Vibration Transmissibility of Honeycomb Paperboard

Received19 Oct 2003
Revised27 Nov 2003


Honeycomb paperboard is a kind of environmental-friendly package cushioning material with honeycomb sandwich structure, and may be employed to protect products from shock or vibration damage during distribution. This paper deals with the characterization of properties of honeycomb paperboard relevant to its application for protective packaging in transportation, such as dynamic cushion curves and vibration transmissibility. The main feature of the paper is the evaluation on the shock absorbing characteristics and vibration transmissibility of honeycomb paperboards with different thickness by a series of experimental studies on the drop shock machine and vibration table. By using the fitting polynomial of the curve, the experiential formulas and characteristic coefficients of dynamic cushion curves of honeycomb paperboards with different thickness have been obtained. From the vibration tests with slow sine sweep, the peak frequencies and vibration transmissibility are measured and used to estimate the damping ratios. All the works provide basic data and curves relevant to its application for protective packaging in transportation.
