Attempts to apply finite element analysis for simulation of the final geometry from extrusion blowing process have been studied. One of the accuracies for the prediction is a suitable mathematical model of the thermoplastic during the process. Visco-elastic model is found to be a suitable model by many researchers. This paper simplified the shear relaxation modulus function (SRMF) which characterizes the high-density polyethylene in molten state. Instead of the series of five exponential functions previously used, our simplified-SRMF consists of one power function of temperature and time. The deviation of our model from Williams-Landel-Ferry model with KBKZ constants, between the temperature of 140°C to 200°C and time from 0 to 10 sec, is 9.3706%. When simulated on a bottle, our model has the final bottle thickness and time deviation from WLF-KBKZ model by 0.19622% and 3.07362% respectively.
