NASSCO Pier Strengthening

marine structural strengtheningThe 90 ton gantry crane in the photo above, is being supported by a 50-ton rated pier. Although the crane is not typically fully loaded, this pier experienced some overloading from time-to-time.

The beams directly below the crane rails required both shear and flexural enhancement to accommodate the service loads. Fibrwrap Construction provided a design-build proposal based on the engineer's performance requirements.

Only a few piles needed repairs. The batter piles pictured had to be rebuilt to regain their shape and stiffness prior to wrapping. The concrete repair included the use of The TYFO® CIS corrosion inhibitor. The TYFO® SEH-51A system was installed using the TYFO® SW-1 epoxy so that the jacket could cure in the bay.
