Mechanical Properties of Molded Pulp Pallet
Molded pulp material has been paid much attention for the cushioning package, yet there is no perfect method for evaluate the cushioning properties of different molded pulp configurations, which hampers the advance of molded pulp industry. In this paper an Equivalent Area Theory are put forward in order to study the cushioning properties of this material and the molded pulp pallet is taken as practical example. By experimental and theoretical analyses, the cushion coefficient and maximum stress curve of the molded pulp pallet is obtained, and a design method of molded pulp pallet is established.
