    Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) piping, also called Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) piping, is a cost-effective alternative to corrosion prone metallic piping and non-reinforced thermoplastics. However, the design of FRP systems requires specific knowledge as there are fundamental differences compared to the design of steel piping.

    This course teaches you all the fundamentals required to design and work with FRP piping systems. After this course you have a solid understanding of the material properties and behavior for piping systems and you understand how this impacts designs. The engineering process is demonstrated, including pipe stress analysis. Also, a multitude of real-life field examples are discussed that illustrate critical aspects of FRP systems. In this course a great deal of attention is given to practical aspects of engineering FRP systems.

    The course consists of 8 online, self-study modules combined with 5 online live sessions with the instructor. All training content is provided through your EngineeringTrainer account.

    After the course you maintain 1-year unlimited access to the course and the discussions forum. This allows you to perform modules again when you need to refresh the knowledge for your projects.
