Abstract

Packaging plays a significant role to provide safety to the products. At the time of storage and transportation, cartons are stacked one above the other and subjected to compressive forces which lead to the crumbling of corrugated boxes. Box design is an important perimeter to consider while manufacturing of the boxes to make sure the box compression strength of the boxes satisfies the requirement. In this paper, we study the effect of keeping the box square in shape irrespective of the height, on the compression strength of the box when compared to a rectangular box (non square) of the same perimeter. This may help us in making a more informed design decision when it comes to production of corrugated boxes
