Static Analysis for Container Drop Test with a Case Study

M. Muni Prabaharan

Abstract—A great numbers of test are needed in designing and manufacturing of any new product to meet the safety requirements. The impact performance of new product is a major concern of a new design. The test procedure has to comply with international standards, which establishes minimum mechanical requirements, evaluates yield stress and deformation characteristics of products. The rapid developments in numerical simulation techniques, faster computing ability, and greater memory capacity, are allowing engineers to create and test new products in virtual environments. This enable design teams to consider virtually any container drop test without incurring the expense associated with manufacturing and machine time. Numerical implementation of impact test is essential to shorten the design time, enhance the mechanical performance and lower development cost. This research study deals with the simulation of impact test for a new product by using finite element analysis. Simulation was conducted to investigate the stress and displacement distributions during impact test. As a result, the use of explicit finite element method to predict the performance of new products design is replacing the use of physical test. Usually, the drop test is done by high expensive softwares where dynamic analysis can be done. But, this paper proposes the possibilities of using static analysis software.
