Concrete structures and their advantages

The purpose of designing and building a structure is to provide security against collapse and guarantee its performance during operation. The building frame is one of the important components of building construction and forms the foundation of a building. Concrete skeleton is used in many structures. There is no specific limitation for using concrete structures. Cement, gravel, sand and rebar are used in the construction of concrete structures.

Concrete is a chemical compound that in its simplest form consists of three parts: cement, aggregate and water. Cement has the role of binder and filler between aggregates. Common aggregates include sand. Concrete raw materials are readily available in most cases. Consumable aggregates are often found in abundance in most areas, and cement is one of the materials that have been used in the past.

Construction using concrete is a cheap, fast and durable way to carry out many construction projects. And there are many benefits in using this material. For example, concrete, if it is not exposed to destructive substances, becomes stronger and stronger over time and its resistance increases.

Concrete structures include two horizontal parts such as horizontal beams and beams and vertical parts such as columns and walls. The main components of a concrete structure are:

  1. Foundation
  2. Column
  3. Walls
  4. Connection
  5. Slab (roof)

Advantages of concrete structures

  1. Easy to use and easy to shape using a mold
  2. Easy transportation from the mixing site to the concreting site
  3. Ability to pump or spray to fill cracks, crevices and tunnel linings
  4. The possibility of building all kinds of structures from a simple beam to the most complex one
  5. Greater integrity of concrete than other materials and as a result
  6. Being economical compared to other materials due to its high compressive strength and also being cheaper
  7. The ability to customize its strength according to the needs of the structure
  8. Very durable compared to other materials
  9. Low cost of repairs and maintenance
  10. High resistance of concrete against high heat and fire
  11. High resistance to overturning caused by lateral forces such as wind
  12. Relatively good face and heat insulation
  13. Low vibration of concrete structures due to heavy weight
  14. Easy to repair and retrofit
