Goals

Learning outcomes :

  • To state the challenges and positioning of paper/cardboard in the packaging sector (importance and future of paper/cardboard worldwide, raw materials and raw material use, general specific properties of compact board use, composition and manufacture of compact board in relation to its physical properties, the different types of flat and corrugated board, its manufacture and its properties)
  • To characterize the cardboard manufacturing processes to identify and present them
  • To rely on theoretical elements of Paper Physics, on the thermal and mechanical properties of materials, to understand the Flexural Stiffness and Vertical Compressive Strength of packaging
  • To calculate the bending stiffness of a cellulosic material
  • To characterize and measure the resistance to Vertical Compression of packaging
  • To know and optimize the manufacture of flat and corrugated cardboard

Content

Key points regarding world packaging market evolutions. Definition of folding and corrugating boards and their uses in the paper industry.
General understanding in process engineering, material transfer and mechanical properties applied to rigid material as corrugated and folding boards.

Be able to definite folding and corrugated boards and their making processes. Be able to analyse specific physical properties and board's uses as well as board’s potential, the required properties for runnability and for the use for converted products.



Prerequisites

Knowledge of basic paper physics (first year, thermic and mecanic properties of cellulosic materials

Tests

Written exam (catch-up possibility)
