11:15 – 12:30 Corrugated board – digital modelling
This lecture shows various techniques of numerical modelling of corrugated cardboard packaging. It is generally known that corrugated board is a material characterised by orthotropy, a complex structure of the flat and undulating layers and a different compressive and tensile behaviour. Therefore, its correct modelling is a key task necessary for the effective and reliable determination of the behaviour and performance of various boxes. The presentation shows numerical and analytical models of corrugated board and the general use of computational tools in estimating the load capacity of corrugated board packaging.
