The material, form and geometric shape of egghavebeen designed in a way that nobody could ever break an egg squeezing it lengthwise. This research is based on the pattern of human palm. Two soft and concave seating bases are built in order to hold the two ends of the chicken egg. Differentchicken eggs with various geometric shapes were examined by Zwick compression strength test while they were raw, baked and empty. The maximum failing force (breaking of the egg) was 988 Newton.Static linear and nonlinear analysis and modeling of material and geometry is done by Ansys software or with Shell181 element. Early results show that chicken egg content has no effect on its load-application capacity and the reason of breaking are exceeded orbital tensile stresses. With the same thickness, eggs with length to width ratio of 1.4 have the highest load-application capacity and eggs with length to width ratio of 1.7 have the lowest load-application capacity.
