Residential, educational, office and commercial buildings are common examples of civil engineering structures. This structure consists of various elements like slabs, beams, columns, footings and staircases. Apart from the above buildings, civil engineers are associated with the design and construction of retaining walls, water tanks, bridges, dams, towers, cooling towers. For the construction of all the above structures very commonly used material is reinforced cement concrete (R.C.C.), which is a composite material consisting of concrete and steel. When water is added to an intimate mixture of cement, sand (Fine Aggregate) and jelly (Coarse Aggregate), it forms a plastic mass, popularly known as concrete. This mass can be easily molded to desired shape and size using formworks. The concrete gradually hardens and achieves the shape and size permanently. Apart from the main ingredients cement, sand, jelly, and water, small quantities of admixtures like air-entraining agents, waterproofing agents, workability agents may also be added to impart special properties to the concrete. Concrete is good in resisting compressive stress but is very weak in resisting tensile stress. Hence it is to be reinforced with suitable material wherever tension develops.
