Maintaining in good condition structures, especially historical ones, which have been subject to partial or significant destruction over the years is a task that conservators, architects and constructors are becoming more and more often used. Due to various reasons, related to: displacement of supports, changes in soil and water conditions, influence of atmospheric factors, change of humidity, inappropriate geometry and cross-sections of elements, aging of materials, rheological phenomena or impact of exceptional load situations, structural elements require repairs and reinforcements. Composite materials are an excellent alternative to traditional methods, materials and technologies. Keywords: heriatage; strengthening; composites; vaults; FEM.
