    Abstract

    The compression strengths of five different RSC style corrugated fiberboard containers were obtained using both fised and floating compression test platens in order to determine the effect of the platen on the results. The difference between the compression strength using fixed and floating platen methods was found to be small compared to the normal variation in compression strength between identical boxes. It is concluded that either test method is suitable.
