    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 will teach you all the fundamentals required to design and work with FRP piping systems. After this course you are familiar with the material properties and behavior for piping systems and how this impacts designs. A multitude of real-life field examples will be 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 5 interactive, online live sessions provided by the instructor. Recordings and related training content are provided through our online portal.

    Level: Intermediate

    This course consists of 5 instructor-led live sessions which consists of presentations, demonstrations and discussions of questions. During each session, participants can ask questions to the instructor (through chat or microphone) which will be answered. After each live session the recording of that session, used slides and exercise documents are made available to participants to view again. If desired by the instructor, exercise files are provided at the end of a session that will be discussed in the next session. These should be performed by the participant before they are discussed in the upcoming live session.
