Why core RCC Structure learning is important for civil engineers ?


Do you ever think about?

Who are the creators of these big buildings & structures?

How they have been constructed?

Behind these questions……….The answer is “Structural Engineering”.

Infrastructure sector is a key driver for the Indian economy. The sector is highly responsible for India’s overall development and enjoys intense focus from Government for initiating policies that would ensure time-bound creation of world class infrastructure in the country. Infrastructure sector includes power, bridges, dams, roads and urban infrastructure development...

India has a requirement of investment worth Rs 50 trillion (US$ 777.73 billion) in infrastructure by 2022 to have sustainable development in the country. India is witnessing significant interest from international investors in the infrastructure space.

Don’t you think Civil Engineers , there is lot of scope in civil industry , need to learn RCC design ( Reinforced Cement Concrete ) and be known as Structural Engineer.

There are 296 job openings in India for RCC Design .Out of which 30 job openings are in Pune.

Imagine the number of jobs available around the world!!!!!

We are taking about RCC. Are you aware of it ? If no ,then learn with us.

What Is RCC ?

In lay men’s language “When simple concrete (pcc) is made strong by providing steel bars, which is called reinforcement bars, then it is called RCC”

In technical terms an RCC building means the main structural members of the building, viz, slabs, beams, columns and foundations are made up of reinforced cement concrete.

Benefits of RCC:

  1. Reinforced concrete has a high compressive strength compared to other building materials.

  2. Due to the provided reinforcement, reinforced concrete can also withstand a good amount tensile stress.

  3. Fire and weather resistance of reinforced concrete is fair.

  4. The reinforced concrete building system is more durable than any other building system.

  5. Reinforced concrete, as a fluid material, in the beginning, can be economically molded into a nearly limitless range of shapes.

  6. The maintenance cost of reinforced concrete is very low.

  7. In the structure like footings, dams, piers etc. reinforced concrete is the most economical construction material.

  8. It acts like a rigid member with minimum deflection.

  9. As reinforced concrete can be molded to any shape required, it is widely used in precast structural components. It yields rigid members with minimum apparent deflection.

  10. Compared to the use of steel in structure, reinforced concrete requires less skilled labor for the erection of the structure.

Now we know about the basic of RCC. Its time to learn , know the job opportunities in it.
