Sometimes Glass fibre will work as well - depends on how much extra strength you need.  Can use sheets or strips along the bottom or sides or use a longitudinally embedded rod along the bottom.  A lot less invasive than steel plates.  Depending upon where you are, suppliers can be Fyfe, Replark (Mitsubishi), Sika and probably a lot more in the US I don't know about.

Carbon fiber reinforcing.  Fyfe is one company that makes this.

I have a glulam beam overstressed in flexure. Anyone have any great retrofit ideas?
