Bridge Strengthening

Initially developed for seismic strengthening of bridge columns, the Tyfo® Fibrwrap® system has been used to strengthen bridges all over the world. It has undergone rigorous structural and durability testing to gain acceptance for use by Departments and Ministries of Transportation worldwide. 

Tyfo® Fibrwrap® systems have been used on bridges to:

  • Increase load rating
  • Complete seismic retrofit
  • Repair impact damage
  • Extend service life

Completed installations include:

  • Historic arch bridges
  • Pedestrian flyovers
  • Construction error remediation
  • Corrosion repair and protection

Seismic retrofit

When bridges, buildings, columns and other infrastructure fail in an earthquake, many lives can be endangered. To help mitigate these risks, Tyfo® Fibrwrap® systems are designed to provide additional shear strengthening to these structures. Our FRP solutions can be used for strengthening:

  • Diaphragm shear
  • Rectangular and circular columns
  • Beam and slabs, including both shear and flexure strengthening
  • Reinforced concrete and unreinforced masonry walls
  • Beam/column joints
  • FRP drag struts
  • FRP connections BC/JT/super anchors
