E3: Design Protection against Compression

Comp - Udb°jning af pap

When designing a box you are not able to just use the ECT-value given in N/m. The ECT-test is done with a low sample and a box is much higher. Thin materials will bend out to the side and are not able to carry the full load.

Comp - kasse med styrke langs bukkelinier

The result of this effect is that almost all the strength in a box is near the bending lines. 60-90% of the compression force is generated only of the 5 cm around the edges.
