|Summary||The transportation of dangerous energetic matter requires containers with various specifications in order to get the maximum security. The design of a suitable structure is based on a method in which the material particularities result from the container functions. In this paper, the interest of this type of method is studied. Thus, after a description of the methodological process, the example of the container is detailed. The successive steps of the conception leading to the final structure are explained. The numerical simulations allow the dimensions of the structure to be defined and the thermo-mechanical behavior of the container to be numerically simulated, particularly for the polymer filling the cells of the alveolar structure.
