This method describes procedures for determining the edgewise compressive strength, parallel to the flutes, of a short column of single wall and double wall corrugated fiberboard. The method includes procedures for cutting the test specimen (saw cutting and knife cutting), one procedure for specimen support (Morris specimen holder), and two procedures for applying the compressive force (constant strain rate, or constant load rate). Studies have shown that any combination of these procedures will yield similar test results.
