High Impact Answers to Fender Design Questions

Posted by Andy Loff on July 22, 2020

Ferry ImpactThe higher the requirements, the better FRP compares as the solution. This was evident again in last week’s webinar on fender protection systems under high energy impacts. The high strength, low-stiffness structural behavior of FRP ensures a system that bends, but does not break. During the discussion on the design of these energy-absorbing fenders, there were questions from attendees. We have compiled our responses on our sister company’s website. Take a look at the High Impact Answers.

The webinar discussed FRP pipe piles, properties, manufacturing and, most importantly, how to design these fenders using FRP piles and the latest product evolution: high-stiffness FiberWALES.
