Plastic containers are extensively used for transportation and
storage of a vast variety of fluids due to their low production
cost and easy manufacturing. Nevertheless, they are prone to sudden
failure when subjected to impact loading, such as drop impact.
There is a basic lack of understanding of the fundamental
mechanisms leading to such failure as well as the effects of
parameters, such as pressure, strain rate, container design,
material properties, etc.. The main aim of this study is to
investigate the behaviour of water-filled blow-moulded polyethylene
containers sunbjected to drop impact, and the mechanisms leading to
their failure in order to be able to predict when such failure will
occur. To this end, a combined experimental-numerical investigation
is applied. Standard and instrumented drop impact tests are carried
out, in parallel with extensive numerical simulations performed
using finite-volume based fluid-structure-fracture interaction
procedures. This study can be very useful in design of plastic
containers as well as to all researchers dealing with various
fluid-structure-fracture interaction problems.
