Armstrong, Bill & Root, Dale: The Leonardo Challenge: Dinosaur Road Trip
Description: The chance of a lifetime. That’s what it was. The opportunity to develop a protective packaging solution for a 77 million year old mummified dinosaur called Leonardo, to ensure that the fossil could be transported from its home in Malta, Montana to NASA Houston to be scanned for remnants of internal organs within the amazingly complete torso of the petrified, mummified Brachylophosaurus Canadensis. Protecting this one-of-a-kind treasure presented a number challenges which led quickly to the recruitment of aknowledgeable and competent packaging team to work on the project, each focusing on their areas of expertise. Bill Kipp from ISTA and Dale Root from Lansmont were enlisted along with David Hagood, Amer Geirl and Jack Rickards from Sealed Air. This joint presentation will cover the background and history of the project along with the procedures applied to assess the fossil, measure the anticipated shipping environment, evaluate the candidate protective materials and then design and create an effective protective packaging system capable of safely transporting the world’s most complete articulated dinosaur 2,000 miles to its destination at NASA Houston. We’ll also explain how it got the name, Leonardo. Follow along as we monitor Leonardo the Dinosaur Mummy on the trek to the Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas. A picture’s worth a thousand words, and this project includes 272,731 images that have been integrated with GPS and instrument data streams to provide situational a

Armstrong, Bill: Overview of Applications of Testing to Procedures 3A and 3C, 2005
Description: The introduction of ISTA Procedure 3C, and more recently, 3A have brought about what could be a significant trend in the design and testing of packages intended for distribution through "Parcel Delivery Systems". Compared to the requirements of the historical and traditional Procedure 1A alternative, these new protocols represent significant, and perhaps unrecognized, challenges for the designers of packages for shipment in these important delivery systems. This presentation will discuss some of the issues, particularly those which Sealed Air has encountered in their efforts in these areas over the past few years.

Armstrong, Jeffery: University Update: Michigan State University Center for Packaging Innovation and Sustainability, 2009
Description: As packaging has moved toward becoming a “decision science” and there is greater appreciation of packaging’s importance to new product development, in terms of consumer behavior, retail and brand value, product quality, supply chain and profitability, there has been an even stronger recognition of the impact of packaging on the global ecosystem. New demands that packaging not only deliver quality products, but also have minimal impact on the environment are leading to additional expectations of packaging as a science. To fully address the need for an integrated approach to research, outreach and education focused on issues of innovation and sustainability, we have established the Center for Packaging Innovation and Sustainability at MSU. The Center will bring together university scholars, students and practitioners to address issues associated with sustainability; develop measurements, tools and strategies for quantifying and reducing environmental impact throughout the value chain; and build leadership capacity to address the environmental impact of packaging. The Center will serve as a bridge between corporate and packaging industry professionals, University scientists (in packaging, engineering, business, the environment, and other areas), distributors and consumers. It will offer an entry point for industry to have easy access to School of Packaging expertise and to cultivate collaboration. It will serve as a clearinghouse for advancing knowledge, disseminating informatio

Batz, David & Young, Dennis: The Lighter the Package the Higher the Drop and Other Packaging Myths, 2006
Description: This presentation will include data from a recent study of the effect of weight and size (volume) on the frequency and height of drop hazards in a selected small parcel ground environment. For many years the common thought process when classifying drop hazards and developing test standards for the small parcel environment has been "the heavier the package, the lower the drop height". In addition, it has been commonly accepted that regardless of the size and weight, small parcel packages should be tested using the same number of drops. Dave Batz will explain his analysis of this relationship and Dennis Young will recommend using this and similar studies to launch a new way of thinking about package drop testing.

Bickerstaffe, Jane: What Businesses Need to Do to Use the Best Packaging for the Product, Consumers and the Environment, 2014
Description: Packaging has always evolved to match changing economic, demographic and lifestyle trends. We need the widest possible range of materials and pack types to enable it to continue. However, today, the choice of packaging is in danger of being restricted by policies that favour one type of packaging over another and by misconceptions about its environmental impact. This talk will focus on what companies can do inform consumers and policymakers about the role of packaging.

Bisha, James: Correlation of the Elastic Properties of Stretch Film and Unit Load Containment, 2013
Description: The most common unit load stabilizer is stretch film. The standard measure of film application effectiveness is containment force as described in ASTM D4649. Within certain guidelines, the final selection of the film and wrap patterns is still based on trial and error performance testing. A simple procedure that predicts containment force as a function of film properties and application method would help designers optimize unit load performance in supply chains. Various tensile properties of layered films were compared with two measures of containment force. It was determined that a tensile stiffness subsequent to non-linear relaxation was the best predictor of containment force. Various empirical models were evaluated. The effect of layering appears to be additive for many films. However, variations in material chemistry as well as poor control of pre-stretch at application, reduces the reliability of containment force predictions from physical characteristics of the film. This study points the research direction forward that will permit more reliable predictions of containment force from film properties and application methods.

Bix, Laura: New Frontiers in Usability Testing, 2008
Description: Increasingly, packaging is being viewed not as an expense to be dealt with, but as an asset to be leveraged. When viewed in this way, effective package design becomes paramount. The aging of the population has also brought increased focus to the usability of packages. However, traditionally, scientific focus has heavily emphasized interactions between the product and the package, not consumers and packages. This presentation will highlight ongoing work at the MSU School of Packaging which is attempting to provide quantification to the interface between people and packages in order to create informed designs.

Derifield, Rod: R-Value: Sustainability through Design, 2008
Description: Leading organizations are embracing sustainable design practices not only because they are good for the environment, but also because they are good business. Today, the concepts of sustainability are being integrated into business models and product strategies across the board. Cradle-to-Cradle programs are an example of the application of sustainable design to real-world business practices. Programs like these represent a fundamental shift away from the ‘damage-minimization’ and ‘damage-management strategies’ of the recent past and takes ‘Green’ to the next level, a level where it makes sense to business and the environment so it might actually work. This presentation will present a case study on the reasons and rationale for an innovative new R-Value program which demonstrates how a cradle-to-cradle program can be implemented quickly and successfully through the application of logic, the spirit of partnership, and a little ingenuity.

Filson, Dave: A New Way to Test a Unitized Load for Rough Handling, 2009
Description: Of the several pre-shipment packaging tests we perform to qualify a full Unitized Load (UL) ASTM D 6179, Rotational Edge Drop - Test Method A or Test Method C depending on the weight of the UL, is one of the more subjective tests. However, these tests are the most important. If the UL fails this test the rest of the sequence tests are aborted because if the load can’t be moved successfully it is too unstable for the continued testing of shipping and warehousing capability. Those of you who have practiced these test methods are all too aware of the potentials of trashing the wooden pallet, not to mention the load, and the associated ergonomic/safety issues one is exposed to during the testing. To that end we have designed and developed a new testing apparatus for practicing these test methods.

Fung, Richard: The Syncretization Between Environment Protection and Today’s Technology, 2014
Description: The presentation covers two case studies involving packaging solutions. Both case studies will involve a new design with the objective of creating a greener package while minimizing the total cost. The first case will show the process of an LCD monitor package redesign because the original package contained too much volume, the corrugated box and EPS Foam was not environmental, creating a large amount of “white pollution” and the size of the box is consuming too much space during storing and shipping, increasing the carbon footprint. Corrugated packaging cushion is used to replace the EPS Foam Cushion and testing is done to validate the new design. The second case covers package re-design of a LCD panel. Considering the recycling and reuse of the package, recyclable packaging has replaced the one time use package. The new standardized packaging design is able to store and transport LCD panels from one place to another and both the inner and outer packaging can be reused multiple times. Lastly, the new paper pallet will be introduced. This is a revolutionary design which allows automation and providing over 1000 kg force of vertical compression strength. Overall, the presentation analyzes the core elements of package design, testing, and performance.

Green, Bill: Putting All Your Smart Eggs in One Basket: Benefits of Creating a Packaging Center of Competency, 2015
Description: "In the past, IBM packaging engineers were dispersed throughout various organizations, each representing different segments within the company, with very little interaction with one another. As a result, we had a splintered strategy for packaging and distribution, most of our best practices were not widely adopted, customers were confused by very different packaging solutions for similar products, and the proverbial wheel was reinvented over and over again.
To create a cohesive strategy and to begin sharing and implementing best practices across the corporation, IBM's Integrated Supply Chain created a cross-brand packaging engineering Center of Competency (CoC), which united all engineers under a single leadership team. This Award Winning CoC created an environment that fostered a philosophy that encouraged knowledge sharing, skills development, innovation, recording of results, and accountability. The results yielded significant cost reductions, environmental improvements, increases in quality, and best of all: improvements in the skills of each engineer so he/she could adjust to new challenges that come with an ever-changing global supply chain. Takeaways: The benefits of consolidating the packaging subject matter experts; challenges and methods to promote integration and information sharing and engagement for a global engineering team; examples of goals and measurements; methods to promote your team's accomplishments."

Hayward, John: An Analytical Approach to Determine Dynamic Tall Load Stability, 2015
Description: "Determination of tall load stability has historically been through the use of a tip test while the product is on a pallet. With most tip-overs occurring when the product is moved by pallet jack or forklift, this is not a realistic test. This presentation addresses the dynamic forces experienced during handling, permitting the analytical determination of tall rack/product stability without the need for testing. Takeaways:
1. Consideration that there may be a better way to determine tall load stability when mounted on a foam shock pallet than using the tilt test.
2. Consideration for the use of analytics to determine stability to enhance throughput in configuration centers.
3. Consideration for a unique specification for tall electronic cabinetry."

Heil, Henry & Kelinske, Darryl: Transformational Packaging - Learning From Our Grandparents, 2013
Description: New and different approach to reuseable packaging. Currently reuseable packaging is mostly limited to closed environments. Typically the packaging must be returned to the original pack out location. Compadre is starting a paradigm shift that reuseable packaging be more available locally and to a broader community. In other words, go outside the normal closed loop. The packaging would be designed to transform to meet the different needs of the initial receiver and also be designed to be reused by members of an expanded local community. The key is designing the packaging so that it transforms to meet broader needs and stays in the community. This would be very responsible packaging. It would have an extended life that would delay a trip to recycling or the landfill. There also would be a significant impact on holistic cost savings. We will present case studies, including ISTA testing data.

Horvath, Laszlo: The New Era of Pallet Design: The Effect of Packaging Size, Stiffness and Number of Layers on the Load Carrying Capacity of the Pallet, 2015
Description: "During the design of pallets, it is a common practice to assume that the load is continuously distributed on the top of the pallet. However, in reality packages on the top of the pallet experience different levels of bridging depending on their physical characteristics. This bridging phenomena significantly increases the load carrying capacity of the pallet and it is unaccounted for in current design methodologies leading to overdesign and reduced sustainability. The presentation will cover the results of the latest research on load bridging within the unit load focusing on how the size of corrugated boxes, stiffness of corrugated board and number of layers in a unit load influences the load carrying capacity of the pallets with different stiffness characteristics.
Takeaways: - Increasing the size of corrugated boxes significantly increases load bridging.
- Increasing the stiffness of corrugated board significantly increases load bridging.
- Using more layers in a unit load increases load bridging.
- The load bridging phenomena has different effect on pallets with different stiffness characteristics.
- Efficient and sustainable pallet design methodology needs to incorporate the effect of packaging and unit load stabilizers."

Howard, Kevin: Case Study: Matching Field Failures to Lab Failures, 2015
Description: When companies have consistent product failures in distribution, they may attempt to use traditional damage boundary testing to define bare product fragility, or perhaps increase free fall drop heights on packaged products, believing that higher drops must have caused the problem since the initial laboratory qualification levels appear to have been inadequate. This presentation will show why these traditional approaches failed and how the issue was resolved. Takeaways: Damage boundary testing works, but not always as expected. Increasing drop heights often finds the weakest link of a product design, but not always. This presentation will show how one product needed a different approach due to its unique characteristics. The audience will gain valuable insights as to the importance of replicating field failures in the lab, and how one must remain open minded on ways to achieve that damage. The results are different than anything I recall seeing at any previous conference.

Howard, Kevin: Stories from the Field, 2008
Description: This presentation will focus on a number of examples where direct field observations were the key to understanding field damage issues. On multiple occasions the author has found the most significant problems in the field have not been reported by those closest to the situation. Though field measurements are important to better understand physical hazards to packaged products, many of the hazards causing expensive problems to corporations are not capable of being measured with typical data recorders. This presentation will demonstrate the importance of personally observing the distribution system to understand the most consistent types of failures, why and where they occur, and then to consider the range of options that may resolve the issues.

ISTA Temperature Project - Data Summary, 2002
Description: In the late summer of 2001, ISTA undertook a research project to monitor temperatures and relative humidity in an in-service, interstate Less-Than-Truckload (LTL)environment. Project parameters were elected to look for extreme high temperatures. The project used electronic data loggers. High temperatures above 140°F (60°C) were recorded; however the exposure time for lading in the trailers was small at the high temperatures. The data suggests that there is some heating effect, or increase in trailer interior temperature above the surrounding ambient temperature. Relative humidity was also measured and had extremes over 80% RH on some occasions. Data is presented graphically as temperature and relative humidity vs. time, and selected data as temperature exposure in minutes and in percent of trip total time.

Joneson, Eric: Case Study: Environmental Measurement and Laboratory Testing Using Both Single and Multi-Axis Measurement Inputs, 2015
Description: Vehicle vibration input is generated from complex motions that are directly related to road roughness. That motion can be described in terms of “degrees of freedom.” In nature there are six degrees of freedom; three translational and three rotational. Uneven road surfaces cause multiple, uneven inputs to the vehicle suspension and the resulting motion (response) of cargo bed is correspondingly complex. This presentation will highlight studies where measurements (with instrumentation) and recordings (with video equipment) were made of both the vehicle suspension input dynamics, and the responses of cargo that was being transported in the bed of a truck. The presentation will also highlight subsequent testing that was performed on a multi degree of freedom vibration test system, using both single and multi-axis control inputs. Comparisons of the test items’ responses to both single and multi-axis inputs will be shown and discussed.

Kausch, Thomas: Compression of Corrugated Boxes – Area vs. Height, 2013
Description: " The intent of this paper is to share some research that was conducted which builds on the McKee formula by taking into consideration the height of the package. Compression testing was carried out for several groups of corrugated boxes, which have the same bearing area with different heights. Together with the stacking strength, different failure modes of the tested corrugated boxes were evaluated. Finally, this study investigated at what point the height of package would be a liability when it comes to compression strength. The findings from this study help packaging engineers in understanding the relationship between box area and height for a defined corrugated material type."

Kim, Jongkyoung: Logistics Research and Development Outlook: Logistics Technology Roadmap 2015-2025 for R&D and Standardization
Description: KATS, Korea Agency for Technology and Standards, has developed a standard-based R&D roadmap for smart logistics in order to help industries deal with increasingly competitive environment globally. The main benefit of this study is that it provides information to make better R&D investment decisions by identifying critical technologies and technology gaps and finding ways to leverage R&D investments. While most technology roadmaps for logistics have been used by many companies and industries, the focus has been a product, neither on a service nor a standard. The roadmap categorizes three major areas: intelligent logistics, sustainable logistics and safe and secured logistics. Development of the roadmap includes: (1) define the scope and boundaries for the technology roadmap. (2) Identify the product, service and standard that will be the focus of the roadmap. (3) Specify the major technology areas. (4) Define each technology and their time lines. (5) Recommend the product, service and standard alternatives that should be pursued. (6) Develop an implementation plan for next 10 years. Takeaways: This roadmap focuses on logistics technologies, services, and standards that require effective R&D and standardization planning, and may be utilized as an effective tool for coordinating future logistics R&D, service and standardization activities.

Kipp, Bill: New Considerations for Random Vibration Testing of Packaged-Products, 2008
Description: Vibration has long been a part of laboratory tests for packaged-products. Starting with circular-synchronous motion, then progressing to sinusoidal resonance-search-and-dwell tests, and now with today’s PSD-based random vibration, tremendous progress has been made in the simulation of actual distribution vibrations and the quality of test results. In recent years, however, it has become recognized that the PSD approach can omit, or “average out”, infrequently-occurring but nonetheless significant and potentially damaging events. A number of proposals have been made and test approaches undertaken to address this issue, including high/low spectra, control of kurtosis, synthesis of non-stationary random, use of non-Gaussian vibrations, and shock-on-random. This paper will describe the issue and summarize the various suggested approaches in simple terms. Recommendations regarding further research and possible industry consensus will be made.

Marcondes, Jorge & Batt, Greg: Update on Dynamic Compression Measurement and Testing, 2003
Description: Dynamic compression occurs in transport due to vehicle vibration. Often designers only consider static compression (warehouse stacking), ignoring the effect of dynamic compression forces that cause higher stresses and damages to products and packages. This presentation will share some advances in field measurement and laboratory simulation of dynamic compression. The results show that packaging design may be improved to achieve a total reduction cost.

Martinez, Manuel Garcia-Romeu: Reduction in the Use of Stretch Wrap Film Based on Transport Simulation, 2014
Description: Stretch wrap is an essential packaging material for assuring the stability of most palletized goods. But applying just the right amount of stretch wrap with the right parameters of tension, pre-stretch, etc., is not straightforward nor easy. The use of laboratory transport simulation testing can help to define which is the most optimal stretch wrap film configuration for a given palletized load. The presentation will show, through a business case, how optimization of stretch wrap can be achieved, along with the associated cost reduction.

Notohardjono, Budy: Dynamic Analysis of Forklift and Pallet Jack Handling, 2015
Description: This paper discusses the stability analysis of a product while it is being handled by a forklift or pallet jack. The stability criterion is defined as the product not tipping over during relocation. There are several parameters affecting the stability of the product including its weight, width, depth and location of the center of gravity. When the product is handled by a forklift or pallet jack it is bolted onto a pallet. In this situation, the pallet width, height, bottom deck strength and friction coefficient between the forklift fork and the pallet influence the stability. Additionally, the forklift’s speed, turning radius, and deceleration all affect the stability of the product. Finite element modeling is an analytical method that can be used to evaluate the dynamic stability of a product during manual or mechanical handling. Specifically, an explicit finite element model will be solved which allows for the highly nonlinear transient dynamics that are found in complex, real world problems. This analysis method will allow the observation of the initial product dynamics, the fracture of the pallet bottom deck and then the subsequent tip-over interactions of all the bodies. This explicit method will allow the consideration of all the previously stated variables in a dynamic simulation, not possible with simple static, implicit models. The objective of the finite element modeling is to evaluate all the parameters and to provide guidelines on the maximum speed.

Rabenhorst, Randy: Cushion Specification: Impact of MADE Study Data on Cushion Design, 2006
Description: A review of the MADE Study Data reveals that products shipped in the single package environment are five to nine times more likely to experience single drops of 48 inches than multiple drops of 30 inches on the same face, corner or edge. This finding has implications for cushion design, material selection and possibly product testing using ISTA standards. Most importantly, optimization of package design in the single package environment to balance Supply Chain Cube Cost (SC3) against damage and return costs should consider the high likelihood of drops of 48 inches or more. It appears that optimum cushion design depends on the combination of first drop cushion performance and fracture resistance, as much or more than multiple impact performance. A comparison is made between EPS and ARCEL® for shipping various products internationally and domestically. It is shown why thinner, more effective cushions can make sense to reduce both damage rates and overall SC3.

Description: A review of the MADE Study Data reveals that products shipped in the single package environment are five to nine times more likely to experience single drops of 48 inches than multiple drops of 30 inches on the same face, corner or edge. This finding has implications for cushion design, material selection and possibly product testing using ISTA standards. Most importantly, optimization of package design in the single package environment to balance Supply Chain Cube Cost (SC3) against damage and return costs should consider the high likelihood of drops of 48 inches or more. It appears that optimum cushion design depends on the combination of first drop cushion performance and fracture resistance, as much or more than multiple impact performance. A comparison is made between EPS and ARCEL® for shipping various products internationally and domestically. It is shown why thinner, more effective cushions can make sense to reduce both damage rates and overall SC3.

Rouillard, Vincent: Some Observations on the Heave, Pitch and Roll Vibration of Road Transport Vehicles, 2013
Description: This paper describes the initial findings from an investigation into the nature of the pitch, roll and heave motion of road transport vehicles. Because the vertical vibrations emanating from road vehicles have been shown to be significantly more severe than the other modes of vibration, the broadly adopted approach to undertaking transportation field trials have been restricted to simulating the vertical motion. However it is becoming increasingly recognized that, in some cases, the pitch and roll motion experienced under certain conditions, although relatively less severe, can be as detrimental to the shipment as vertical vibrations. This is particularly the case for vehicles with short wheelbases, carrying tall loads. Another motivation for the study is the increasing availability of vibration test systems capable of simultaneously producing vertical, pitch and roll motion. Although data and guidelines for simulating vertical vibrations of road vehicles are readily available, there is a distinct lack of information on pitch and roll motion. This paper describes the findings of a research project aimed at better understanding the relationship between vertical vibrations and pitch and roll motion for road transport vehicles. An inertial measurement unit (IMU) was used to collect heave, pitch and roll data for a range of conditions (vehicle type and speed and road roughness). The frequency character of the data was analyzed using Fourier analysis, whereas the correlation of am

Saha, Koushik: An Evaluation of Clamp Truck Handling Practices at Sears Distribution Centers, 2015
Description: A carton clamp device is advantageous as it allows operators to move layers of a unitized load individually, and eliminates the need for a pallet when handling full unitized loads. The required clamping force typically changes depending on the size, shape, and weight of the load. This creates the potential for under-clamping (slippage) and over-clamping (compressive damage). Sears as a company uses carton-clamping methodologies as opposed to traditional fork and pallet lifting methods in their warehouse. In the United States their merchandise is stored in a distribution center until being shipped to individual retailers. This project focuses on the portion of the distribution channel from the distribution center to the retailer. The primary objective was to provide clamp truck handling related guidelines that could be used in practice by Sears Holding Corporation warehoused merchandise. Product of varying sizes was tested in several different configurations to be carried by a carton clamp according to a modified version of ISTA 3B.

It was the intention of the researcher to study whether the new method, "printed-RFID-antenna", could be used to reduce the cost of RFID applications in the corrugated packaging industry. Although the study showed success of conductive antennas on kraft and corrugated, the conductivity achieved was still far from that of the antennas on commercial labels. This leads the researcher believe that, with an additional treatment on corrugated material and the process, this method can be feasible in the real production.

Shires, David: Moisture Problems in Containerised Beer Shipments, 2013
Description: "Condensation (container sweating) is a problem that affects many containerised shipments. The UK P&I Club (a major international marine insurer) report that water damage accounts for 10% of containerised shipment damage claims.
The US is a significant export market for major UK breweries. Beer is exported in can, bottle and keg formats. Export is made by sea container freight to both east and west coast ports. The combination of efficiency in logistics, collation pack formats and product temperature makes beer exports particularly vulnerable to moisture damage. This presentation will examine the causes of container sweating and the range of controls introduced by brewers to prevent moisture damage."

Singh, Jay & Saha, Koushik: Assessment of Single-use Cold Chain Packaging and Distribution Towards Maintaining the 2-8°C Range, 2011
Description: Cold chain solutions typically involve excessive packaging to ensure that the desired product temperature is maintained through distribution thereby increasing the logistics related costs, which are estimated to be six times as compared to the package itself. There are numerous solutions available for shipping temperature sensitive products that include a variety of packaging materials as well as refrigerants. Though characteristics such as the R-values of package systems and the melting points and heat absorption rates of various refrigerants have been studied in the past, none of the past studies have evaluated the effect of distribution (vibration, shocks, ambient temperature, etc.) on the reliability of the cold chain packaging solutions. This research studied the temperature profiles for factors such as the different densities for a given thickness of packaging material, wall thicknesses and distribution environment hazards. The findings of this study will be decisive in designing cost efficient and practical single-use cold chain transportation solutions for temperature sensitive products.

Singh, Jay: Carton Clamp Test Methodologies and the Affects on Load Containment and Retention, 2014
Description: A carton clamp device is advantageous as it allows operators to move layers of a unitized load individually, and eliminates the need for a pallet when handling full unitized loads. The required clamping force typically changes depending on the size, shape, and weight of the load. This creates the potential for under-clamping (slippage) and over-clamping (compressive damage). While ISTA provides a calculated and stationary simulation of carton clamp handling in its ISTA 6-SAMS test protocol, ASTM offers a more dynamic and observational approach through its ASTM D6055 standard. This study examines whether or not a common ground can be reached towards implementing a carton clamp lift truck as found in industry allowing for mobile (hazard course) testing. A modified version of ISTA 3B was paired off against ASTM 6055 for observing the test methodologies’ effect on load containment, load retention, and the effects of ride height and driver interaction.

Singh, Paul: Development of a Single Air Parcel Shipment Test Federal Aviation Administration, Washington DC, USA, 2015
Description: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is reviewing the ICAO Technical Instructions for Safe Transport of Dangerous Goods, and is proposing a new regulation for the testing of packages under normal conditions of transport. This study done in conjunction with Cal Poly State University Packaging Program reviewed the existing test methods used to characterize normal conditions of transport. The review showed that the existing vibration test method conducted at “single frequency and constant acceleration” is not representative of the vibration conditions that occur. The package testing industry for the past three decades has therefore shifted from the use of single frequency sinusoidal tests to “random vibration test methods”. Therefore new data was collected and updated based on research done by Cal Poly State University and Michigan State University (funded by FAA) to measure and quantify this multi-mode shipping environment. The study used the operations involved with the time spent by the package in each of the logistical networks to determine a “single profile” or “test” that would represent the average and normal expected levels for each hazard element, and would serve as the basis of minimum level of performance testing.

Stone, Luther: Vibration Testing 101, 2008
Description: What is vibration and why should you care about it? What is resonance and why should you care about it? When shouldn’t you care about resonance? Why does the second layer of cases on some pallets show more compression damage than the bottom layer, even though the bottom layer has more weight on it? How can you simulate a stacked vibration test, including resonance, using only one case of product? Why does a pallet affect a vibration test? How will I answer all these questions in the time allotted? There’s only one way to find out.

Stone, Luther: Wobble – Experiments in Stability Testing, 2014
Description: After Ralph Rupert’s presentation at the 2011 Transport Packaging Forum, we began experimenting with ways to test and measure unit load stability using an inclined impact tester. Here are several approaches we tried, and what we like and dislike about them. Takeaway: Hopefully you’ll take away ideas you can try in your lab. Better yet, maybe this presentation will spark new ideas, or new ways to use and interpret the results. Even better, maybe your ideas will make their way to ISTA’s Load Stability Workgroup which would help them develop a useable test.

Torres, Omar: Shelf Life Adoptions - Energy-Aging Graph, 2015
Description: "Once you have a Packaging System validated and a change comes, you would like to make an assessment to verify that the already validated Packaging System is good for the new product after the change. You will need to demonstrate that the Packaging System is good, not just today but through the range of the Shelf Life. If performance of the Packaging System design needs to be challenged because the resulting product is the worst case, then you need to challenge the Packaging System design at the non-aged and aged condition. You cannot use a previous performance tests (non-aged and aged) as evidence to declare the Shelf Life of a new product. But Shelf Life can be adopted for a new product which is covered under the worst case scenario. This all details are easily explained with a graphical figure that is exposed over an Energy-Aging graph.

Takeaways: Attendees of this section will have a tool to make right decisions about the required validations activities when a Packaging System or product is changed. The tool, which is a graphical representation, can be used to align working peers on the required test while helping the organization to have a robust validation."

Trost, Thomas: New Experimental Tools for Improving Corrugated Box Performance, 2009
Description: It is well known that transportation means high and varying stresses for products as well as packages. To develop boxes with the ‘right’ amount of material and the right construction is crucial. The vibrations and shocks acting on pallets during transportation are transferred to the corrugated boxes and considerably reduce the strength and life time of the boxes. Important parameters to consider are stacking strength, load distribution and the degree of stacking misalignment. This paper presents a technique for investigating these stresses based on a pressure sensitive film, which gives many measuring points and a pictorial description of the stresses that occur. A series of tests using static as well as random and sinusoidal vibration testing have been done utilising this technique and results have been presented for different positions on the pallet. Also advantages and disadvantages with this technique will be described and new knowledge possible to elaborate will be discussed.

Description: "Containment force readings using a pull plate or similar tool are treated as a single force when in reality they are a combination of the compressive force (AKA wrapping force) and the stiffness (AKA stretch resistance) of the wrapped film on the load. Compression and stiffness each contribute to load stability but in different ways. Their contributions are dependent on the inherent vulnerability of the load to different failure modes. This study is a look at the roles of compression and stiffness as isolated variables and the balance required to stabilize a variety of loads with different stabilization requirements.

Takeaways: What forces comprise “Containment Force” and how are they balanced during a pull plate test. - How to better understand a load’s inherent stability / failure vulnerability and the changing contribution requirements of compression and stiffness."

White, Marhsall: The Effect of Pallet Deck Stiffness on Package Compression, 2015
Description: "A generalized FEA model of wood pallets, measurements of packaging stiffness and the engineering principles of beam on an elastic foundation have been integrated into a model of the static compression interaction between pallet decks and packaged product. How this unit load design procedure can be used to reduce packaging cost, will be demonstrated with examples.

Takeaways: Within unit loads the cost of the packaging is often 10 to 50 times more than the cost of the pallet. It will be demonstrated, how a redesign of the pallet can be used to significantly reduce the cost of the packaging on top of the pallet. Control of the pallet design used, is critical to achieving the 8 to 18% packaging cost reduction."

Young, Dennis, Packaging Myths™ II: Simulate shipment in the lab with random vibration and other Packaging Myths™, 2007
Description: The series continues…this time we focus on vibration testing and the use of standard test profiles and times, plus measurement and analysis of the vehicle vibration environment. Does the profile you rely on really simulate anything that's real and potentially damaging? Are you adding package performance - and cost - to meet an unrealistic test? Or are you under-testing and leaving yourself vulnerable

Young, Dennis: Combined Environment Testing, Now and in the Future
Description: Real Hazards occur as combinations such as vibration and temperature or compresion and humidity. In the laboratory we often treat these hazards as isolated or serial events instead of conjoined or parallel. Compensation techniques are commonly used to attempt to bridge the gap, but as packaging evaluation technology advances combined environment testing (CET) protocols need more attention. This presentation treats the issues, limitations and opportunities in current and future views.

Young, Dennis:Packaging: Are We Driving or Riding, 2005
Description: Packaging is a diverse discipline and like the blind men and the elephant, appears differently to different people. Packaging is often underestimated in technical content and potential for value-add contribution. To help make packaging a driving force the author suggests four techniques, Integrate, Innovate, Interrogate and Initiate. Emphasize the multi-functional aspects of packaging, bring new ideas and methods into play, learn more about packaging and packages and assume a leadership role in bringing packaging into the spotlight.

Yuan, Jay: Simulation of Primary Package Damage in a Tray-Based Unit Load, 2011
Description: With increasing demands for cost-cutting and global awareness of sustainability, shrink-wrapped tray-based unit loads have become more common recently. This exposes the primary package to external loads, such as pre-tension of shrink wraps, tightness, pattern and number of revs of stretch films, stacking load, side compression load, incidental side impact load from transportation, etc. In addition to evaluating unit load stability and performance, computer simulation can go a step further to assess the potential primary package damage that could be caused by the exposed external loads. The simulation detects any potential issues of the primary package at an early stage of the development process, before physical samples are available, with commensurate reductions in risk, cost, and speed to market.
