Top load analysis of a plastic container

Plastic containers for food or for industrial product must support a minimum top load charge for stacking, but must also be as light as possible to reduce material.

A structural analysis was performed on several design iterations of a container to obtain the best trade off between top load resistance and weight.

Non-linear material definition was used for the polymer and non-linear solver was used to accurately predict the buckling point and post bucking behavior.
