RCC – Reinforced Cement Concrete
Reinforced Cement Concrete is a combination of concrete and steel to build a structure instead of using only concrete. Concrete is good in resisting compression but is very weak in resisting tension. On the other hand, steel has high tensile strength and the bond between steel and concrete is good. To overcome the drawback of Concrete, reinforced steel bars are used along with concrete.
