Abstract

Box Compression Strength (BCT) can be defined as the measure of the maximum compressive force per unit width that a paper board box can withstand during a compression test till it reaches the buckling stage. It is expressed in kN/m.It is one of the most important property of the paper board package and it helps in determining the staking limitations as well as the overall strength of the package. Usually, a box compression tester is required for conducting the BCS test but within this paper, an effort has been made to find a more accurate BCS (box compression strength) reading by just using the simplified McKee formula. An average difference value was found out between the BCS readings obtained by the tester and the values calculated using the simplified McKee formula for square boxes of increasing perimeter. The fluting used were A, B and E. If this average difference in incorporated in the formula, it may end up increasing the accuracy and hence the functionality of the formula.
