The Tyfo® Fibrwrap® Systems can provide many retrofit solutions for our vital civil infrastructure (bridges, airports, and other highway structures).
Tyfo® Systems can be used to strengthen transportation infrastructure for the following reasons:
- Increase Load Ratings
- Seismic Retrofit of Structural Components
- Rehabilitation of Corroded or Distressed Members
- Maintain the Appearance and Overall Aesthetics of Historic Bridges
- Extend the Service Life
- Emergency Repairs
- Construction Error Remediation
The Tyfo® Fibrwrap® System has been used extensively on bridges, tunnels, elevated roadways, airports, and other transportation infrastructure all over the world. In the 1980’s, the very first research conducted on the Tyfo® Fibrwrap® System was on bridge columns for added strength and confinement. These tests were quite successful and they led to the development of design procedures for various columns, beams/pier caps, walls, slabs/soffits and beam-column connections. Additional rigorous structural and durability testing was performed to gain acceptances from the various, Cities, Counties and State Departments of Transportation. The Tyfo® Fibrwrap® System can provide cost-effective solutions, low impact and fast-track completion for most structural deficiencies.
