Steel Concrete Reinforcement

The concrete has low tensile strength and ductility. It is necessary to add reinforcement to resist the tensions in the structural elements. ACI and ASCE recommend use of steel fiber as reinforced concrete to prevent cracking, increase impact resistance and prevent destruction due to fragmentation.

* Easily added to concrete.
* Hooked wires provides anchorage.
* Provides faster construction times.
* The reinforcement is always in the right place.
* Economic as compared to traditional methods.
* Load bearing capacity is high.
* 3-dimensional dispersion of reinforcement provides excellent crack control.
* High resistance to dynamic loads and sudden impacts.
* Provides wide joint spans.
