What is reinforced concrete?
The concrete in which reinforcement is used is known as RCC (Reinforced Cement Concrete) elsewhere it is known as PCC (Plain Cement Concrete)

Rebar are steel rods/bars that are usually combined with concrete to create reinforced concrete. Reinforced concrete takes the weakness of each individual material and pairs it with the strength of the other. Reinforced concrete is a highly adaptable material, able to be used in a variety of structures.

Concrete is composed of cement and other cementitious materials such as fly ash and slag cement, coarse aggregate made of crushed stone, fine aggregate such as sand, water, and chemical admixtures. In reinforced concrete, steel is introduced in to the concrete. In plain concrete, no steel reinforcement is introduced. Generally tensile and compressive strength is taken by reinforced concrete and only compressive strength is taken by plain concrete
