Look at Sika Carbodur Carbon strips by Sika Corp. They are carbon fiber bar
strips applied with adhesive to the underside of the beam. Fire tested,
easy to install, and the equivalent of three #10 bars would be easy. They
have been used on a few buildings, several bridges, and the Navy pier in San
Diego area. Fairly impressive technology.
