Slab Strengthening

Tyfo® Fibrwrap® systems can be used to increase the structural performance of both reinforced concrete and pre-stressed/post-tensioned slabs. The potential structural uses include the following:

  • Positive moment enhancement
  • Negative moment enhancement
  • Diaphragm shear strengthening
  • Punching shear*
  • Collectors/drag struts*
  • Chords*
  • Shear transfer between slab/roof panels*
  • Supplement cut steel/openings
  • Correction of an existing construction and/or design error*

Given the basic project parameters (specifically the detailed performance goal and the existing capacity of the structural element), Fyfe Company engineers will provide a preliminary composite design and cost estimate, at no obligation.

* These applications involve more complex and/or limited designs. Special detailing and project coordination will typically be involved.
