Composite Design and Software for FRP Structures and Laminates
We are composites specialists and a design house that specializes in FRP/composite design. We mostly work with engineering firms and manufacturers. Working with a composite design is a very esoteric skill. We have been working with and designing with FRP and composites since 1998. FiberDesign offers designs for both FRP Structures and Laminate projects. Please feel free to visit the site pages for details. Finally, any questions, please drop us a note or call.
What we do
FRP / Composites Design
Contract CADD for detailing on your design (we check the design too)
Laminate Design for glass, carbon or aramids using FEA Analysis and/or by spreadsheet
PulCalc FRP Calcs Program for use with modeling software like RISA-3D
FRP Library (visit Subscriptions)
Composites Delivery/Courier Service (Northern New England, See Below)
Member: SAMPE North America and the Maine Composites Alliance
FiberDesign is a Veteran Owned Business
The PulCalc video below is a bit dated, but the newest version is similar with more features and ease of operation. Also see RISA Article link below.
The FRP Library Subscription gives clients access to the FiberDesign FRP Drawings Library. This will not Auto Renew, you will need to renew every year (we will send a reminder). The FRP Library is included with a PulCalc Subscription. The FRP Library includes most common pultruded profiles and connections.
New Proposed FRP Concealment Panel Spec and white paper for the new cellular C Band spectrum
The time had come to come up with a new FRP panel. It is here.
New PulCalc V2.16 Released
Latest REV is PulCalc 2.16. Release date 2/25/22. See the PULCALC PAGE ® for more info.
Updated PulCalc® Instructions
We updated the PulCalc® Instructions for V2.12 Send us a note and we will send over the PDF file.
PulCalc® V3.0 Coming!
UPDATE: We are working on the new FRP Standard. ASCE has released a Public Comments version of the new code. We sent in comments to ASCE. Meanwhile work continues on the new PulCalc version. It will be much more effective and powerful for the design engineer. We are also awaiting RISA updates that fix a bug and provide better data to input into Pulcalc.
PulCalc® Article on the RISA Website!
FiberDesign and RISA cooperated to provide an article on using PulCalc with RISA-3D on their website.
