CRSI: Reinforcing Steel

Most people are familiar with reinforcing steel, commonly called "rebar". It is used in bridges, buildings, skyscrapers, homes, warehouses, and foundations to increase the strength of a concrete structure. Rebar is used in concrete to provide additional strength, as concrete is weak in tension, while steel is strong in both tension and compression.

Clinker: compositional parameters - Understanding Cement

In ordinary Portland cement clinker, the AR is usually between 1 and 4. The above three parameters are those most commonly used. A fourth, the 'Lime Combination Factor' (LCF) is the same as the LSF parameter, but with the clinker free lime content subtracted from the total CaO content.

Cement - CEMEX

Cement is a fine powder, obtained from the calcination at 1,450°C of a mix of limestone, clay, and iron ore. The product of the calcination process is clinker—the main ingredient of cement—that is finely ground with gypsum and other chemical additives to produce cement.

Concrete: Scientific Principles

Concrete is not as likely to rot, corrode, or decay as other building materials. Concrete has the ability to be molded or cast into almost any desired shape. Building of the molds and casting can occur on the work-site which reduces costs. Concrete is a non-combustible material which makes it fire-safe and able withstand high temperatures.

Solids and Metals - Specific Gravities

The Specific Gravity - SG - is a dimensionless unit defined as the ratio of density of the material to the density of water at a specified temperature. It is common to use the density of water at 4 o C (39 o F) as reference - at this point the density of water is at the highest.. Specific gravities - SG - for common solids and metals can be found in the table below:
