Construction reinforcement: types and application features
Today, no construction is possible without the use of reinforced concrete products. For modern builders, this material occupies one of the most important places. Construction reinforcement (B500B, B500) made of steel is necessarily present in monolithic reinforced concrete and is its most essential element. Thus, the quality of buildings directly depends on the material used. If builders use steel structures made of rebar, then the building or structure will be durable for many years.
Construction reinforcement (B500B, B500) can be smooth or have a periodic profile. Reinforcement of the second type is a round profile with two ribs located longitudinally, as well as transverse protrusions. Such reinforcement has a good anchoring ability, therefore it is often used for the construction of structures of impressive dimensions, which have a sufficiently large thickness of the protective concrete layer.
Construction reinforcement: where it is used
Reinforcement is used in the production of all kinds of reinforced concrete structures. The presence of reinforcement in them provides high concrete strength characteristics. Superiority in the frequency of use belongs to flexible steel reinforcement. Metal structures such as a frame are formed from it; mesh obtained by welding; bar. Considering the physical and mechanical features and other quality indicators, the reinforcement differs in strength classes. It can be technically hardened, thermomechanically hardened or hot rolled.
