Constructing buildings is not an easy task, It requires a lot of resources, technical skills, dedication and commitment. When we talk about the resources, the most vital components for constructing buildings are reinforced steel and concrete. Reinforced steel is primarily known for its excellent strength and ductility which provides the necessary strength to withstand the load of the structure. However, there are several factors that can affect the strength of the steel in such a way that it becomes extremely dangerous to the whole structure, and one such factor is rusting.
A building in only strong as its structure, this strength allows structures have an operation lifecycle of many years, right up to 200 years. This operational longevity may seem long when seeing structures which are old than 500 years. The difference here is with respect to cost, the time taken to build these structures and much more metrics related to the construction field. For example, the Taj Mahal took 20 years and 20,000 workers were needed to finish the structure, no doubt the structure is a testament of the structural creativity and the structural integrity, the reason why it still stands. What modern architecture has built these of structures to be made at less cost, safer, and reduced number of workers as well. One of the reasons for this is concrete and the concrete is bonded with TMT bars.
