Have ran a simulation of a thin walled pressure vessel using shell elements.
The model had uniform wall thickness and was OK
I have now drawn a thin walled pressure vessel with a varying wall thickness.
It is actually a model of a coke can the bottom is 0.3mm sidewall 0.1mm and
where it tapers in at the top 0.16mm.
With my previous study I created a surface offset mid plane then applied shell elements.
Is this possible with a variable wall thickness?
