Industrial concrete is known for being the ultimate building material. It’s accessible, easy to use, and quite permanent. It is a common choice for builders and the go-to alternative to metal. But concrete is not indestructible, and even time can degrade it. In this video, you will learn about some of the industrial concrete needs that builders need to be aware of and address as they make use of this material. In particular, concrete needs to be reinforced, and this video will tell you why and how.
The biggest issue concrete faces is stress. Stress involves forces acting upon the material. There are three types, compression, tension, and shear, and they all work a little differently but naturally at changing the shape of things over time. The video will show how concrete specifically is affected by each of these types of stress. With these demonstrations, you should be able to see that concrete can act on its own, it needs help. That’s where reinforcement comes in, and the video will show you the best ways to reinforce concrete.
