Abstract
The aim of this thesis was to investigate how packages, both primary and secondary,
behave under transportation. Before a full analysis of a pallet distribution can be
fully understood the understanding of the separate packages is required. This thesis
contributes with great knowledge and understanding of how a primary and secondary
package behaves during top load compression.
Tetra Pak is a global leader in the food & packaging industry and in order to main-
tain this market position, continuous investments in new technologies is of great im-
portance. Finite Element analysis is one of these technologies which enables more
understanding of the manufacturing process and makes faster decision based on well-
grounded results... (More)

grounded results possible.
This thesis is divided into two parts; Experimental tests and Finite Element Mod-
eling, FEM. The experiment is in detailed described, evaluated and discussed using
relevant theory, statistical analysis and observations. Several modeling approaches
have been reviewed and two nal nite element models is presented.
The information collected from the experimental tests in combination with engineer-
ing reasoning have contributed to an increased understanding of which parameters are
of great importance to capture the physical behavior on a macro-scale. The results
from the nite element modeling indicates an modeling approach that capture these
behaviors in accordance to the observations and analysis.
The result from the work done in this thesis have a foundation for continuous improve-
ments. Future difficulties have been highlighted but a workable approach is presented. (Less)
Popular Abstract
Beverage packages are often damaged when transported from manufacturer to consumer. To reduce this food waste, virtual package models has been developed for better understanding and fast-forwarding the development of the package resistance to transportation damages.
