"Packaging Dynamics" serves as an introduction to the dynamic behavior of products and packages in the distribution environment. It presupposes little or no background in shock and vibration. Simple mechanical and mathematical models are used throughout the book to lay a solid groundwork for later discussions of more complicated interactions between products, their packages, and the environments in which they both move.
The reader is introduced to and lead through the following chapters:
- Hazards in Distribution
- Forced Vibration and Product Safety
- Damped Vibrations, Vibration in Distribution, Vibration Testing, and Random Vibration
- Mechanical Shock
- Shock in Distribution, Product Fragility, and Cushion Design
- General Considerations for Package Testing
