    im using dnv hsc rules for calculating the 15m patrol boats structure but I cannot find the formula for calculating the section modulus requirement of longitudinals, transverses, etc for frp. And, also I cannot find the formula where I have to use the Acg for calculating the section modulus of frp structures. Can someone guide me to this? Thanks.

    The modulus of a section is not depending on its material. Therefore, you do not look for the specific GRPG formula because it does not exist.
    All Classification Societies have formulas for the minimum required module in the main section. You should look more closely.
