Purpose of Providing Reinforcement in R.C.C.

Concrete is week in tension and it is to be reinforced properly with suitable material. The purpose of providing reinforcement in R.C.C. is:

  • To take up all the tensile stresses developed in the structure.
  • To increase the strength of concrete sections.
  • To prevent the propagation of cracks developed due to temperature and shrinkage stresses.
  • To make the sections thinner as compare to plain concrete section.
