Structurally reinforce concrete beams using CFRP

The use of Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer, CFRP, in construction is on the rise. With the condition of the aging infrastructure around the country and the rising cost of building materials, it is typically more economical to repair or re-purpose structures rather than building new ones.


CFRP can be used to increase the flexural and shear capacity of existing beams for increased loading. In addition to the cost benefits of these type of repairs, strengthening with CFRP can typically be accomplished in a fraction of the time when compared to traditional strengthening or repair methods.
