Structural Strengthening



The professionals at Cohesive Engineering are considered experts in the field of structural strengthening, especially pertaining to the utilization of composite materials (carbon fibre and glass fibre sheets) and steel strengthening, and external post-tensioning. Structural strengthening is typically required to improve/store structural integrity and increase member load carrying capacity. Strengthening with composite material such as carbon fibre sheets are helpful when repair space is limited (area has numerous conduits, fire suppression system, limited clearance, etc.) and replacement of existing structural reinforcing are not practical. The type of the strengthening application is dependent of numerous factors, such as; fire, capacity increase required, operating environment and application condition.
