Simulation of pressure vessel with variable wall thickness

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?
