In more recent times, structural engineers have adapted FRP technology to strengthen numerous concrete, masonry and timber structures throughout the world. With our strong engineering and contracting base, Structural Systems offer both design and installation for projects that can benefit from FRP strengthening systems.
The sheets of CFRP exhibit the following advantages compared to the steel sheets:
They are light in weight
They do not corrode
They are available in large dimensions
They have low modulus of elasticity accompanied by large elastic deformations up to failure, which are particularly useful properties for pre-stressing
