Abstract : Side pads and corner pads are used in two common methods of applying cushioning material for shock protection of fragile articles in shipping boxes when the articles are rectangular hexahedrons or are readily given this form by boxing or blocking. The side-pad method was studied in a previous investigation. (A third method, complete enclosure of the article by cushioning, also may be employed, but either of the other methods generally utilizes the cushioning material more efficiently.) (Author)
