Up until now, we have discussed tests that can be used to predict the resistance of corrugated boxes to failure due to stacking. The other main way that corrugated boxes fail is by rupture due to rough handling and/or heavy or awkward loads. The box drop test was developed to predict the performance of boxes under these unfavorable conditions. During a box drop test, a box is filled with a standard load and sealed and then dropped onto its corners, edges, and/or flat surfaces from a standard height.
