Transmission and Storage Structures
The Tyfo® system can be used to strengthen chimneys, tanks and silos. The high strength-to-weight ratio of these composite materials makes them an ideal alternative to the more cumbersome steel and concrete retrofits.
The Tyfo® systemscan be used to meet the following design goals:
- Seismic retrofit
- Shear strengthening
- Flexural strengthening
- Repair of corrosion or other structural degradation
- Correct design flaws
- Internal pressure
The Tyfo® system adds minimal dead load to the structure and is relatively easy to install. Fyfe Co. engineers can provide design guidance and cost estimates for rehabilitating chimneys, tanks and silos.
