Title: Status Report - Fiberboard Properties and Degradation Rates for Storage of the 9975 Shipping Package in KAC

Abstract

Thermal, mechanical and physical properties have been measured on fiberboard samples following accelerated aging for up to approximately 12 years. The aging environments include elevated temperature up to 250 ºF (the maximum allowed service temperature for fiberboard in 9975 packages) and elevated humidity. The results from this testing have been analyzed, and aging models fit to the data. Correlations relating several properties (thermal conductivity, energy absorption, weight, dimensions and density) to their rate of change in potential storage environments have been developed. Combined with an estimate of the actual conditions the fiberboard experiences in KAC, these models allow development of service life predictions.
