    Plain Concrete is strong in compression and weak in tension, as the structure is prone is fatigue load i.e compression and tensile stress, steel is reinforced in the concrete to strengthen the concrete to counter tension load.

    Steel is ductile and can bend without buckling and it is take up tensile load.

    Note: SIFCON is Slurry Infiltrated Fiber Concrete.
