A few days prior to the Hawaiian webinar, Ryan travelled to give a similar lunch and learn to Wiss Janney Elstner, one of the nations pre-eminent engineering firms.
If you haven't found the design tools we've recently made available, there are a number of spreadsheet implementations of various aspects of ACI 440.1R design on our web pages here: http://aslanfrp.com/fiberglass_rebar_designstandards.html
These MS Excel spreadsheets are straight forward implementations of the 440.1R design guide covering aspects of design such as a reinforced concrete beam, development and lap splice lengths, multiple layer reinforced concrete beam design, and some specific ones for using Aslan 100 GFRP rebars in TBM soft-eye openings made of diaphragm slurry walls and bore pile configurations. Please download the tools and reach out to our engineers to have them walk you through their use if need be.
If you are unfamiliar with the ACI 440.1R design guide or designing your first project using Aslan 100 GFRP rebar, don't hesitate to get in touch with our engineering staff. Contact links, background on the design support services we offer and some templates that help consolidate the necessary information we require are found on this page as well.
If you would like to earn some professional development hours or would like to have a webinar given for your firm, one of our missions is helping you design longer lasting concrete structures with GFRP rebar. While we are a leading producer of this material, our design webinars are generic in format and similar to the official ACI 440.1R design seminars.
