Robert Steffen, PhD, PE will present an introduction to FRP materials, an overview of the new FRP industry guideline, specific structural engineering design rules and concerns, and specifics of where FRP materials are being used in architectural and structural applications. The focus of the workshop will be on exterior assemblies for commercial buildings; further information will be given on FRP design and analysis, reduction of seismic forces, strengthening, blast resistance, durability, creep, and computer modelling (FEA) of composite materials. Additionally, we will have a hands-on laboratory demonstration of typical, stiffened FRP panels for exterior use.
