Fiber-Reinforced Plastic Pressure Vessels and ASME RTP-1–Reinforced Thermoset Plastic Corrosion-Resistance Equipment


This chapter is intended primarily for engineers and designers whose experience with vessels is primarily with metal equipment. Those having experience with fiberglass equipment but not with Section X or RTP-1 will also find this chapter useful, but they may want to skim over the following sections on FRP technology.

26.2FRP Technology
26.3Fabrication Methods
26.4Stress Analysis of FRP Vessels
26.5Scopes of Section X and RTP-1
26.6Design Qualifications of Section X and RTP-1 Vessels
