Structural Strengthening Techniques

Structural strengthening techniques are used to improve the structural integrity of a building or structure. It is usually done by adding steel, concrete, or other material to provide additional strength. These techniques are often used for bridges, buildings, and dams.

The most common structural strengthening technique is called "reinforcement." Reinforcement involves adding steel bars to the interior of a bridge or building to make it stronger. Another common technique is called "rebar." Rebar involves adding steel rods to the exterior walls of a building to make them stronger.

1 - Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR)

Ground penetrating radar is a geophysical technique that uses electromagnetic waves to detect subsurface features, such as objects, water, and oil. Ground penetrating radar is not a single technology but a collection of technologies that use electromagnetic waves to detect objects, measure the properties of the object, or both.

2 - Special Metal Alloy Strengthening

Special metal alloy strengthening is a process that can be used to improve the strength and durability of metals. The process works by introducing additional elements into the metal’s structure, which change its properties and make it more resistant to wear and tear. This can be beneficial for several applications where metals are subject to high levels of stress or wear, such as in aircraft components or automotive parts.

3 - Micro reinforced Jacketing

Micro-reinforced Jacketing (MRJ) is a new and innovative way to improve the performance of construction projects. It is a thin, lightweight material that can be applied to any surface and cured in minutes using ultraviolet light. MRJ has been shown to increase the strength, durability, and water resistance of concrete, mortar, renderings, stucco, and stone veneer applications while reducing costs.

4 - Sectional enlargement of RCC structure

Sectional enlargement is a great way to increase the strength of your concrete structure. By adding additional concrete around the perimeter of your existing structure, you can significantly improve its load-bearing capacity. This simple modification can be easily accomplished by hiring a professional contractor or masonry specialist.

5 - FRP Laminate Systems: PT and Non-PT

FRP laminate systems are a versatile, durable, and low-maintenance solution for many industries. PT (polyester resin) and non-PT (vinyl ester or urethane) systems can be used in a wide variety of applications such as chemical storage, food & beverage processing, industrial flooring, and more. There are many benefits to using FRP laminate systems including resistance to wear, corrosion, and chemical attack. They are also easy to clean and maintain.

6 - Epoxy injection

Epoxy injection is a powerful and popular technique used to repair cracks in buildings. While it is most often used to repair concrete foundations, the epoxy injection can also be used to repair other types of cracks, including those in masonry walls, ceilings, and floors. Epoxy injection involves injecting a liquid epoxy into the crack which then hardens and bonds the two sides of the crack together. This technique can be used on both vertical and horizontal cracks.
