Is it ok if items are put on top of the quran, not for the purpose of being disrespectful but because of certain situations. For example one puts a book on top of the quran to protect the physical book from the extremities of rain, or sitting on a hot car dash board and being warped if not protected. what about on a bedside table where there are several books piled up, is it necessary to put the quran on the top of all the others, assuming none of these books have anything haram, or rude in them?

If it were to protect it, this is permissible. To put other books on top of it, this is not permissible in normal circumstances.
