In this blog we will focus on the capabilities of Simulia Abaqus to assist in simulating the Blow-Stretch Molding process and use those outcomes like varying wallthicknesses, axial and circumferential Strains, and local obtained material specifications to use that as a basis for a Top Load Analysis on the same plastic bottle.

The geometry describes a PET bottle which can contain 0.5 l of drinkable liquid. Performing a top load analysis is important to determine the vertical stiffness of the bottle. This top load is also important to determine the vertical stack ability.
