Determining Column Yield Strength of Containers
GUIDELINES FOR DETERMINING THE COLUMN YIELD STRENGTH OF THERMOPLASTIC AND THERMOSET CONTAINERS - This guideline covers the determination of mechanical properties of thermoplastic and thermoset molded containers when loaded under columnar crunch conditions at a constant rate of compressive deflection. Any thermoplastic or thermoset molded container may be used, in either the stacked or nested mode, either with or without covers ar as a single container.
