How do I give a product or a fragile article appropriate cushioning to protect it from shock and vibration?

How to match / interface product needs with cushioning and packaging?

There are various techniques and various resilient and non-resilient and space fillers.

There is a fragility factor and cushion factor; how do I match these two so as to avoid DBCurve and critical frequency faced by package.

How does one go about designing for protection of a product?

The best method is to consult with a certified lab that can offer you instrumented shock & vib testing (if you do not know what your actual bare product fragility is) on a real unit you can then evaluate for damage.

Then run shock & vib testing on an instrumented dummy pack using your proposed cushioning. Compare the outputs and you should be able to figure how to minimize the amount of critical frequency getting to your product. There are lots of standard "cushion curves" extant in the literature to help you make educated choices.
