Smooth Varying Shell Definition for Static Simulation

Hi,

 

I am looking into simulating the top load on a plastic bottle. I believe the bottle is first injection molded to get the lid thread accurate and then blown to get the basic shape of the bottle. This means that the body has an outher shell that is non-uniform as the thickess varies around the bottle's cross-section. Is there any way to model this using multiple shells that will have a smooth transition between the thicknesses?

 

Thank you in advance.
