Concrete Column Strengthening



Engineering planning and design is crucial to implementing an effective repair strategy

Deteriorating concrete columns affect many of the structures that were built before before WWII, including bridge columns and interior bearing columns for concrete parking structures.   When properly applied, carbon fiber can greatly improve the concrete and even make it stronger than before.  Concrete columns wrapped in carbon fiber also provides seismic reinforcing strength as well. 

Other applications for carbon fiber reinforcing include:

  • Bowing Foundation Walls:  Carbon fiber can provide structural reinforcement for bowing foundation walls. 
  • Concrete Beams can spall and loose strength, especially when the underlying steel reinforcing cars are exposed.  
  • Parking Garages can greatly benefit from carbon fiber technology.  Structures built by the WWII generation are deteriorating and require structural upgrades when being sold. 
  • Water Tanks can be rehabilitated through the application of carbon fiber wrap.  
  • Concrete Pipes can be repaired with carbon fiber as well.
