Fiberglass or GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic) piping is a cost-effective alternative to corrosion prone metallic piping and non-reinforced thermoplastics. At the same time though fiberglass products bring along some complicating factors compared to those familiar with metallic piping: 1) The material properties are different for the hoop and axial direction. 2) The properties vary since they can be customized for each specific application.

After the training course the participant should be more familiar with these aspects and have a basic knowledge of the GRP specific mechanical and physical properties, and the behavior of GRP piping systems and vessels. The participant will also learn the principal differences between the available design codes for GRP systems and gain insight into the principles and critical aspects of design.
