Engineering students at Edinburgh University are attending lectures in a box of reinforced concrete . The structure demonstrates how adaptable concrete can be. All structural members are of site cast reinforced concrete. The foundation is a 35 by 19 1 /2 foot concrete slab.
Reinforced concrete construction for high-rise buildings provides inherent stiffness, mass, and ductility. Occupants of concrete towers are less likely to perceive building motions than occupants of comparable tall buildings with non-concrete structural systems. A major economic consideration in high-rise construction is

Lecture Note – 32 Steel-concrete composite construction A composite member is defined as consisting of a rolled or a built-up structural steel shape that is either filled with concrete, encased by reinforced concrete or structurally connected to a reinforced concrete slab. Composite members are constructed such that
Engineers and architects are opting for textile-reinforced concrete, a noncorroding building material with a long service life and the same structural properties as reinforced concrete. Components ...
This course is ideal for architects, engineers, construction professionals, and anyone else who wants to learn more about reinforced concrete. This course is also great for college or university students looking to work in architecture, engineering, or construction.
Reinforced concrete (RC) (also called reinforced cement concrete or RCC) is a composite material in which concrete's relatively low tensile strength and ductility are counteracted by the inclusion of reinforcement having higher tensile strength or ductility.

Reinforced concrete, as a fluid material, in the beginning, can be economically molded into a nearly limitless range of shapes. The maintenance cost of reinforced concrete is very low. In structures like footings, dams, piers etc. reinforced concrete is the most economical construction material.

Precast Concrete •Structural elements are commonly reinforced with tightly stretched
reinforced concrete design and construction practice were pioneered by European engineers in the late 9th century. At the present time, reinforced concrete is extensively used in a wide variety of engineering applications (e.g., buildings, bridges, dams). The worldwide use of reinforced concrete construction stems from the wide availability

Reinforced concrete, Concrete in which steel is embedded in such a manner that the two materials act together in resisting forces. The reinforcing steel—rods, bars, or mesh—absorbs the tensile, shear, and sometimes the compressive stresses in a concrete structure.
Concrete construction is a complex process that involves several activities, from hatching and mixing the ingredients to pouring fresh concrete into forms and curing the new construction. There are several factors that might influence the quality of the final product in this process, that is, the built structure.
reinforced concrete, or be of composite construction depends on the circumstances. It is a fact, however, that engineers are increasingly designing composite and mixed building systems of structural steel and reinforced concrete to produce more efficient structures when compared to designs using either material alone. The first two pictures give an
- 1850's: steel bars added to concrete to resist tensile forces - Joseph Monier popularized the steel & concrete combination w/ a patent for reinforced concrete flower pots in 1867; he then went on to build concrete water tanks & bridges w/ the material/ - by end of 19th c., reinforced concrete was used widely

Concrete, reinforcement, and formwork are the three primary expenses in cast-in-place concrete floor construction to consider throughout the design process, but especially during the initial planning stages. Of these three, formwork comprises about 55 percent of the total cost and has the greatest influence on the overall cost of the floor system.
