When I select FRP material from Caesar library (Sr.no. 20), there is no coeff of thermal expansion displayed against the temperature. Does this mean that Caesar considers Coeff of thermal expansion as zero ? I am using Caesar-II 2014, ver 7.0.

You have to update the value of thermal expansion for FRP in special execution parameters/Configuration file. You may contact vendor for the value to be put as it may defer from product to product.

Value for coefficient of thermal expansion for FRP pipe should also be entered in Caesar II configuration editor under FRP properties.

Actually the expansion coefficient for FRP should be entered on the "Special Execution Options" dialog. Alternatively, you can create a custom "frp data" file with all of the FRP properties. You can then select this file in the Configuration Editor.
