DescriptionThis research study proposed to include the glue material in a finite element model that represents the actual geometry and material properties of a corrugated fiberboard. The model is a detailed representation of the different components of the structure (adhesive, linerboard, medium) to perform buckling analysis of corrugated structures under compressive loads. The objective of this analysis was to quantify the influence of the adhesive on the structural performance of corrugated fiberboard. Adhesive parameters are identified in terms of adhesive stiffness and material properties. The modulus of elasticity of the adhesive is taken relative to the modulus of a linerboard material. Three adhesive strength properties representing minimum, medium, and maximum moduli values are considered. The analysis also addresses the buckling failure of fiberboard when adhesion is ineffective along a glue line. Results show that increasing the adhesive modulus (20 times that of linerboard) tends to strengthen the fiberboard buckling carrying capacity up to 50%. Loss of adhesive along a fiberboard glue line substantially decreases the buckling strength of the structure.
