Structural Design of FRP Components
|Publication Date:||1 May 2013|
FRP composites structural members are the newest building materials available for constructing cooling towers. As with any new material, designers must understand FRP's unique properties and the performance differences from other structural materials.
This Structural Design Guideline provides minimum design standards and cautionary recommendations to designers of FRP structural cooling towers. STD 137(07) is incorporated in this guideline as the material specification for FRP pultruded structural products and is the basis for the various tables of values.
