Nuclear Power for Structural Enhancements

Tyfo® Fibrwrap® Systems Help Address Structural Challenges

Fibrwrap Construction has assisted with addressing structural challenges and upgrades within nuclear power generation facilities for nearly 18 years. Tyfo® Fibrwrap® advanced composite systems provide a fast, durable resolution to problems which might otherwise produce high shutdown costs due to lost production capacity.

Tyfo® Fibrwrap® systems have been used extensively to provide the following structural performance enhancements:

• Beam/slab flexural strengthening due to increased load requirements

• URM/RC wall seismic retrofit

• URM/RC wall protection from overpressure events

• Tank seismic strengthening and leak protection

• Steel tank tornado missile protection

 

Tornado Missile Protection

Tyfo® Fibrwrap® systems can be tailored to provide protection to steel tanks and other at-risk structures from design basis tornado missiles as defined by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission's Regulatory Guide 1.76-1.
