Packaging for the purpose of limiting shipping damage has long been an engineering problem of economic importance. Beginning with the work of Mindlin in 1945, much progress has been made. The shipping environment has been studied in detail. Testing techniques for assessing the dynamic behavior of cushion materials have been standardized. Based upon these extensive efforts, a procedure for designing and testing protective packaging has been developed.
