FiberDesign designs projects that require structural FRP.  FRP structural design may include walls, floors, platforms, roofs or complete structures.  Hence, standard submittables include drawings and calcs.  FRP (fiberglass) has very esoteric properties and characteristics.  Additionally, we interface PulCalc FRP Program with modeling software like RISA 3D and can design any pultruded FRP structure.  PulCalc is included with a vendor design contract or is subscription based.

Fiberglass is very different than steel, which is ductile.  FRP is not and thus cannot be analyzed using the standard steel code checks such as AISC.  The design formulas and safety factors are very different.  The formulas and calcs used in PulCalc are based on the ASCE FRP Pre-Standard (2010).

Structure modeling is accomplished with RISA-3D and PulCalc.  In addition, FiberDesign can design composite or FRP plates using FEA.  See the Laminate Page
