Steel Rebar (Reinforcing Bar) – What is it?
Steel rebar is one of the most commonly used structural steel items in use today. In fact, it is commonly incorporated into concrete to impart tensile strength into concrete. Rebar is reinforcing bar. Steel bars are used as rebar because elongation of steel due to high temperatures (thermal expansion coefficient) is nearly equal that of concrete. Moreover, the rope-like appearance provides a better bond with concrete.
Why Use Steel Rebar?
Concrete is sufficiently strong in compression, but weak in tension. Hence, it is reinforced with steel rebar. In addition, it has good tensile strength and the bond between steel and concrete is favorable. Moreover, it is used in more than just large construction projects. In fact, it reinforces home patios and stairways everywhere. It ensures your concrete will last.
