FRP as a Retrofitting Solution for Beams

FRP as a Retrofitting Solution for Beams  can be used to increase the structural performance of both reinforced concrete, steel and wood beam. Given the basic project parameters (specifically the detailed performance goal and the existing capacity of the structural element), Afzir Company engineers will provide a preliminary composite design and cost estimate at no obligation.

Features & Benefits:

Among the advantages of GFRP and CFRP are:

  • Increases flexural strength for both positive and negative moment regions
  • Increases shear strength
  • Increases stiffness at service loads
  • Reduces crack widths for enhanced durability and corrosion resistance
  • Delays future corrosion rate by reducing moisture penetration into beam
  • No reduction in overhead clearance (e.g. in parking garages)
  • Lower cost than conventional methods
