    Abstract

    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 (A and B 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.
