Construction Concerns: Concrete Reinforcement Fire

Concrete defects Archives - Building Defect Analysis

The term concrete cover relates to the distance from the embedded reinforcement to the outer surface of the concrete. This distance is significant for structural integrity, durability, protecting the reinforcement from corrosion and fire. Ordinarily we wouldn't want to see less than 50mm of concrete cover, yet many non-traditional buildings

Rebar in Concrete: Does Concrete Slab, Patio, Driveway

Reinforcing steel has been used for over 150 years in concrete and has undergone improvements throughout that time. Although there are other ways to reinforce concrete, the focus of this article is on steel, and how it is used to improve the tensile strength of pads, slabs, driveways, and walkways.

ENINEERIN Fire Resistance of Reinforced Technical Note

Reinforced concrete performs well in a fire – both as an engineered structure, and as a material with inert (non-combustible) properties. Concrete’s inherent mate - rial properties minimize fire risk for the lowest initial cost while requiring the minimum ongoing maintenance over the lifetime of the project. Reinforced concrete

Is Steel Stronger than Concrete?

May 11,  · Concrete is meant to be fire resistant and is able to meet IBC requirements without the need for further material use to make it fire resistant. The biggest concern is that some of the materials used in construction are not fire resistant, so these additional components will need to have fire resistant properties for the building to be
