Application of the Behavioral Modeling Technique to Structure Optimization in Packaging Container Design


Article Preview

It introduced the application of the behavioral modeling technique and the finite element analysis to optimize the packaging container structure design. Here showed an example about a design process of a certain volume beverage bottle. Firstly, through determining the design targets, analysis the design parameters and iterated calculation for these parameters, the construction and dimension of the container which meet the design targets can be obtained initially. On this basis, the stress on the container can be emulated using finite element analysis. After the strength factor to be considered, the design proposal of the packaging container is the optimized one finally.
