Reinforced concrete structures are the most common component in structural engineering. Engineering experience and research achievements, improvements in manufacturing technology, and applications of new and efficient materials have led to a great deal of progress in reinforced concrete structures. The performance index is increasing continuously, structural configurations are more varied, and the scope of applications is expanding greatly. Today, reinforced concrete structures are used widely not only in various civil and public buildings, single- and multi-story industrial buildings, and high-rise and large-span buildings, but also in bridges, communication installations, and hydraulic and underground engineering. Reinforced or prestressed concrete structures are also used in special structures, e.g., TV towers, electrical transmission poles, silos, chimneys, even reactor and containment vessels in nuclear power plants, and very large hydraulic forging presses.
