RCC - Reinforced Cement Concrete


RCC - Reinforced Cement Concrete

RCC (Reinforced Cement Concrete) is a type of concrete that contains a systematic arrangement of steel reinforcement bars or mesh to provide high tensile strength to the concrete.

Concrete is strong in compressive strength and weak in flextural or tensile strength, the combination of concrete and systematic arrangement of steel provides high compressive and flextural-strength in the structure.

In this article, we will take a closer look at RCC, its properties, applications, advantages and disadvantages.


Properties of RCC

  1. High Compressive Strength
  2. Durability
  3. Tensile Strength
  4. Ductility
  5. Fire Resistance
  6. Sound Insulation
  7. Thermal Insulation etc.

Applications of RCC

RCC (Reinforced Cement Concrete) is a versatile construction material that is used in a variety of applications. Here are some of the common applications of RCC:
  1. Building Foundations
  2. Beams and Columns
  3. Walls and Slabs
  4. Bridges
  5. Retaining Walls
  6. Water Tanks and Reservoirs
  7. Dams and Canals etc.
