XXsys Technologies, Inc. of San Diego utilizes an automated, continuous carbon fiber wrapping system for seismic retrofit and corrosion damage repair of concrete columns. They have also introduced a high quality system for strengthening beams, girders, joints, walls, utilizing a pre-impregnated epoxy/carbon fiber woven fabric which is wrapped around the structural members. Both systems utilize fully monitored elevated temperature on site curing, assuring consistent, verifiable quality, effectiveness and durability. The automated wrapping system underwent extensive testing at the UCSD Powell Labs, under the direction of Prof.Frieder Seible and Prof.Nigel Priestley.It has been succesfully utilized for retrofit of large Caltrans bridge columns and smaller parking structure columns.Three sizes of automated machines are available. The technology was successfully applied on elements of a severely corroded bridge on Interstate 80, in Utah, by special request of UDOT. Further testing and research of retrofit/rehab applications, including wall and beam strengthening is being done at the Univ. of Utah, Salt Lake City, under the direction of Prof. Larry Reaveley and his associates. An article on the application of this technology, authored by James Korff, PE, Director of Engineering Services, and Larry Cercone, PhD, Vice President of Engineering and Operations, will appear in the May issue of ASCE's Civil Engineering Magazine.
