We all know the concrete is strong against compression force and weak against tensile force. So, to stabilise the concrete against tension force, the steel reinforcement is embedded into the concrete. Hence forming reinforced concrete and gives strength and enough durability for the structure. But why not use other materials…

We often get confused about using these terms – Development Length, Anchorage Length, and Lap Length. What is the development length? The steel reinforcement that is prolonged into concrete to avoid steel slippage and to transfer the load to the concrete bond smoothly is known as Development length or Anchorage Length.…

We all knew the concrete is strong in compression and weak against tensile force. The steel reinforcement has been used to enhance the concrete tensile strength. The steel is smoothly merged with the concrete and turned as a homogeneous element reinforced cement concrete. What Fe (number) means on reinforcement drawings?…

What is Prestressed Concrete? Prestressed concrete (PSC) is the composite of concrete and prestressed high tensile tendons. In PSC, the internal stress has been introduced under controlled circumstances before loading, to improve the shrinkage resistance of concrete and avoid the tensile cracks. High tensile strength wires are used in prestressed…

The workability is very tough when using stones for building the structure. Before the modern era, many buildings were constructed using stones, and there is no concrete in the structure.  Moreover, small buildings are constructed by brickwork and random rubble foundations. At present, many structures, even small buildings, are constructed by…
