Concrete Jacketing Projects

Column strengthening is a process used to add or restore ultimate load capacity of reinforced concrete columns. It is used for seismic retrofitting, supporting additional live load or dead load that not included in the original design, to relieve stresses generated by design or construction errors, or to restore original load capacity to damaged structural elements. There are several techniques which are used to strengthen reinforced concrete columns like reinforced concrete jacketing, steel jacketing, and FRP confining or jacketing.
