Reinforced concrete

Reinforced concrete is concrete in which reinforcement bars («rebars») or fibers have been incorporated to strengthen the material that would otherwise be brittle.

Fiber-reinforcement is mainly used in shotcrete, but can also be used in normal concrete. Fiber-reinforced normal concrete is mostly used for on-ground floors and pavements, but can be considered for a wide range of construction parts (beams, pillars, foundations etc) either alone or with hand-tied rebars.
