Although there is additional strength in the bar after yielding (due to ), this additional strength in the bar is not considered in the analysis or design of the reinforced concrete members. MIT OpenCourseWare is a free open publication of material from thousands of MIT courses, covering the entire MIT curriculum. It is competitive with steel if economically designed and executed.
Each lecture builds slowly on top of what you have already learned. I began my career as a structural engineer in the offshore and subsea oil and gas industry. We start from the basics of what is reinforced concrete all the way to covering how steel is incorporated within a concrete member.
Made for sharing. Please download the lecture video from Mirror 7. When completely surrounded by the hardened concrete mass it forms an integral part of the two materials, known as Reinforced Concrete.
The steel must have appropriate deformations to provide strong bonds and interlocking of both materials. It is weak in tension, so steel is used inside concrete for strengthening and reinforcing the tensile strength of concrete. I am currently the founder of Engineering Examples.

Knowledge is your reward. There are 86 lectures within this course. This course is ideal for architects, engineers, construction professionals, and anyone else who wants to learn more about reinforced concrete.
There's no signup, and no start or end dates. We don't offer credit or certification for using OCW. Sorry for the Inconvenience.
Are you sure you want to continue? Since concrete is a brittle material and is strong in compression. The load factor represents a high percentage of factor for safety required in the design.

Send to friends and colleagues. In order to fulfill its purpose, the structure must meet its conditions of safety, serviceability, economy and functionality. Download files for later.
By the end of the course, you’ll be able to identify the advantages and disadvantages of reinforced concrete, calculate various mechanical properties such as as the tensile and flexural strength of concrete according to the American Concrete Institute Code 868-66, and learn about how steel is used to improve the performance of reinforced concrete.

Concrete is a stone like substance obtained by permitting a carefully proportioned mixture of cement, sand and gravel or other aggregate and water to harden in forms of the shape and of dimensions of the desired structure.
