This paper discusses details of manufacture, design, and application of contact
molded flanges used in process piping and tanks and includes case histories
and stress analysis of typical installations.
In 1976 Rust Engineering, Birmingham, Al, had just completed the design of a bleach plant for Champion
Paper where major piping systems were designed using FRP pipe.
This paper presents a method of analysis and illustrations of typical supports that were developed specifically for Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) Pipe.
