Abstract:Nowadays, polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles have been increasingly used as drink containers. They are usually manufactured by a stretch-blow molding process. The improper parameters set in the stretch blow molding process may lead to many defects in the stretch-blow bottle. Finite Element (FE) simulations of the forming process were performed in this paper. The influences of the technological parameters, such as the balance between stretching and blowing rate, the movement of the stretch rod and the inf… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
