In most large-scale construction projects, concrete floor reinforcement is necessary. This is because compared to its high compressive strength, concrete has comparatively weak tensile strength; the larger the area covered by an unreinforced concrete floor, the more likely it is to crack.
Reinforced concrete floors use steel bars or mesh to increase the tensile strength of the concrete. The steel reinforcing bars or mesh are laid in advance with the concrete poured on top, which then solidifies around them. These steel reinforcing bars or mesh then counter any tensile forces affecting the concrete, keeping the structure sound and crack free.
