What is structural strengthening?

Structural strengthening involves reinforcing existing structures to improve their load-carrying capacity and overall performance. This technique can be applied in various scenarios, such as renovations or to support the addition of new equipment. For instance, in precast applications, carbon fiber is often utilized on double tee stems to increase load allowance. Additionally, structural strengthening is invaluable in repairing deteriorating beams and columns, where wraps are used to restore their structural integrity.
