ABSTRACT
In this work, Polystyrene (PS) sheets were thermoformed in predetermined conditions. Wall thickness distributions obtained by experimental method in PS thermoformed products. Then same thickness distributions were predicted by using Geometric Element Analysis (GEA). The thickness results which obtained experimentally, compared to thickness distributions which were predicted by GEA. It has been found that GEA does not reveal thickness distributions precisely.
