Normally we would think that there is no problem using steel in construction because steel is built to last. However, there are many different factors in construction that engineers have to take into account.
One such factor is flexibility. As the old saying goes “what doesn’t bend will break” and it is also true of structures.
To enhance the value, stability, flexibility of your structure the answer is upgrading with composite strengthening. Composite strengthening uses Fiber-reinforced plastics/polymers (FRP) usually applied to concrete, masonry, steel or wood.
There are many different types of materials but essentially it is a mix of fibers (often carbon fibers) and resin (to adhere the fibers). This idea actually comes from the understanding of the properties of wood which is basically a natural FRP, where the wood fibers are held together by pressure and resin.
