Abstract
During its lifetime a beverage package is exerted to different loading conditions. Therefore an increased knowledge is needed to know how the packaging, and thus the thin layer of aluminium foil in the package, reacts to the prevailing loading scenario in a real case situation. In this thesis uni-axial tensile tests on aluminium foil samples cut out in 11 different orientations is done in order to characterize its anisotropic behaviour. To be able to reflect the behaviour of aluminium foil virtually, a material model is calibrated after key-values from the experimental results from three main orientations. To verify the material model, virtual uni-axial tensile test are executed and the results are compared with the experimental test... (More)

Popular Abstract
To virtually reflect the anisotropic behaviour of aluminium foil a material model is calibrated after results from uni-axial tensile tests in three main orientations. The coefficient of determination between the virtual and experimental test turned out to be higher than 0.9, where 1 is a perfect fit.
