    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.

    Good sound concrete has a pH in the pore solutions of 13.0 to 13.5, which is much more alkaline than something like Drano. In this environment, the steel forms a thin layer on its surface that we call a passivating layer. This layer protects the rebar and prevents the anode from forming so no corrosion can occur. For more info you can use this best essay service to having a wonderful assistant in writing and even you can get the guidelines too.
