This article evaluates the suitability of vehicle vibration simulation techniques for packaging testing, including split spectra, modulated RMS and accelerated single-level tests. To do this, a correlation study has been carried out using a specially designed rig measuring scuffing damage. The damage caused by each simulation technique is quantified by measuring the level of ink transfer between a printed clay-coated board and an Ivorex high white uncoated board. Results from the study showed good correlation between modulated RMS and accelerated test with a time compression of 5 and a k equal to 2 with time replication.
