Why are Steel bars used to strengthen the concrete?
Steel bars are very commonly used in construction because of their ability to strengthen and hold the concrete in tension. Concrete itself is a strong material, but everything has an advantage and a disadvantage. Concrete has firm compression-only its tension is fragile. So, to compensate for that disadvantage, we use steel bars which vital the tension in the concrete and strength of overall material become strong to carry lots of loads over it.
There are many uses of Reinforcement bars, also known as Steel Bars. A few of them are discussed below:
- The first and foremost purpose of using Steel Bars is to support loads. There are different loads like dead load, wind load, earthquake load, live load and many more. Buildings are designed loads, and then Steel is used to support that designed loads.
- The second primary purpose of use of the steel bars is; for durability, providing resistance to limit cracking and also for temperature-induced stresses.
- It is also used to stand against concentrated loads.
- Steel bars are also used to constrain masonry structures.
Manufacturing of Steel to form steel bars:
Steel is melted at a high temperature to form Steel Bars, also known as Rebars. Rebars are formed from the Steel of grade 250. This grade of Steel contains 99% of iron with manganese, carbon, Sulphur and phosphorous. The content of carbon is different in different steels.
Steel bars manufacture in different types;
- Stretched, twisted and ribbed
- Ribbed and twisted
Above all are the types of steel bars used in different projects in construction. The demand for steel bars is increasing day by day as our construction projects need a large quantity of Steel to use in different construction projects.
