Another main activity of bow engineers is the planning and design of strengthening measures for all kinds of concrete structures. Higher loads, deformations, changes to the structural system, corrosion damage or deficiencies in execution require strengthening solutions with suitable methods, e.g. sprayed concrete, external bonded reinforcement, injection or external post-tensioning. In addition to sprayed concrete, fibre reinforced polymer has been introduced as an alternative strengthening method in recent years. Currently fibre reinforcement provides a state of the art technique to enhance the load capacity or to improve the ductility of structures under seismic conditions.
