This ebook Reinforced Concrete: Design, Performance, and Applications (PDF) reviews the design, performance, and applications of reinforced concrete.
Concrete is one of the most used materials in the construction industry all over the world. In structural systems, the combination of steel reinforcement bars and concrete gives rise to reinforced concrete (RC), which is widely applied in the civil engineering field due to its adequate durability, mechanical strength, and fire resistance. Steel-rebar reinforced structures are subjected to structural deterioration when subjected to extreme loadings such as fire, impact loadings and cyclic loading, earthquake, consequently reducing the expected life and performance of structures. To enhance structural performance, the RC structures are usually strengthened. or retrofitted.
