Fiber reinforced plastic (FRP) composites offer a number of advantages over the conventional industrial materials. The reluctance of adopting composite materials in high pressure applications, is partly due to a limited understanding of their behavior under multiaxial loadings and lack of qualified design methodologies. Design and analysis issues concerning pressurized components made of fiber reinforced plastic composites, are discussed in this paper. Specifically, the optimum placement of reinforcement with respect to the applied loads, failure modes and failure analysis techniques, and a method of design based on long-term leakage envelope, are presented.
