FRP material Properties

FRP material Properties

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.


RE: FRP material Properties

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.
