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

Reinforced concrete is made by placing steel bars in the tension zone of the beam x-section.

The concrete in which more than one fiber types are used as secondary reinforcement is called hybrid fiber reinforced concrete.

Reinforced concrete is used in building as it combines the good properties of compression strength (Concrete) and tensile strength (steel/iron).
