To help the dynamic stress versus energy method for constructing cushion curves gain more commercial acceptance, this paper presents two improvements to previous work. First is the reporting of stress-energy equations ( and values) for several more commercially available cushion materials. Second is a simplified method for manipulating and displaying the stress-energy equation using a common spreadsheet program. This simplified method makes cushion curves dynamic and accessible without the need for a programming language, and presents the results in industry-standard format. Combining these two components help make the stress-energy method more accessible for packaging engineers working in industry.
