Concrete is a mixture of sand, gravel, crushed rock, or other aggregates held together in a
rocklike mass with a paste of cement and water. Sometimes one or more admixtures are added
to change certain characteristics of the concrete such as its workability, durability, and time of
As with most rocklike substances, concrete has a high compressive strength and a very
low tensile strength. Reinforced concrete is a combination of concrete and steel wherein the
steel reinforcement provides the tensile strength lacking in the concrete. Steel reinforcing is also
capable of resisting compression forces and is used in columns as well as in other situations,
which are described later.
