I posted about this in my 'Shell/no shell" thread but figured it couldn;t hurt a repeat.

Anyone have material property numbers that they "feel comfortable" with for CosmosWorks on FRP? I took some from ctopher's latest database and have been using them but a more complete "guesstimated" list would be appreciated as well.

You might consider having the material tested. Generic databases are just that, generic. FRP is so depedent on process and material choice that there cannot be a generally accepted, guesstimated value. In addition, temperature plays a big part in the properties of FRP.
