Abstract

In this study, the drop tests of eggs had been performed at different heights and different cushion materials, to assess the dynamic behaviour of eggs and to compare the cushioning performance of materials. Expandable polyethylene, expandable polystyrene and triple wall board were chosen as cushioning materials and the elastic modulus of materials were measured by the mechanical experiments. The impact locality was in the big end of egg. The impact acceleration and impact time were recorded by drop tester. The broken height and peak force were obtained for different cushion materials. The results showed that the larger elastic modulus of cushion materials, the greater impact force and less time, which was comparable to the discovery reported in the literature for similar materials.
