Evolution of RCC - Steel Reinforced Concrete

Since the beginning of the human civilization, shelter had been of prime importance as a basic need. Human being looked for primitive to modern shelters for its safety, security and need for rest after daylong struggle for existence. And thereafter gradually, with the improvement in the quality of lives, geography, availability of local materials, the shelter evolved from tree branches, cave and mud/stone houses to modern age residences – log bridges evolved to massive modern bridges and many more. 

In the earlier days all constructions were wholly masonry based, uses of thick walls, massive columns, buttresses and arches were the prime building methods or components. These were basically to mitigate the deficiencies of masonry structures against tensile/bending forces. During those historic days most of the masonry construction was sponsored by financially elevated class like Emperors, Kings and landlords of various stature. But desire for residing in “PUCCA” building / shelter remained as an universal desire for all human being, irrespective of their financial stratification in the social pyramid.

With increased need and desire to build a house with limited resources, trend of building largest house in smaller plot of land emerged. Thicker walls etc were not affordable from both the angles of land area and cost. Therefore the need of sleeker construction developed and scientists started exploring the way out.

To compensate the deficiency of masonry structures against tensile forces, mild steel bars found it’s utility to make the structures strong and sleek. Concept of RCC(Reinforced cement concrete evolved. François Coignet was the first to use iron-reinforced concrete as a technique for constructing building structures. In 1853, Coignet built the first iron reinforced concrete structure, a four-story house in the suburbs of Paris. His descriptions of reinforcing concrete suggests that he did not do it for means of adding strength to the concrete but for keeping walls in monolithic construction from overturning. Thereafter, In 1854, English builder William B. Wilkinson reinforced the concrete roof and floors in the two-story house he was constructing. His positioning of the reinforcement demonstrated that, unlike his predecessors, he had knowledge of tensile stresses.

Before the 1870s, the use of concrete construction, though dating back to the Roman Empire, and having been reintroduced in the early 19th century, was not yet a proven scientific technology. Mr. T Hyatt, published a report entitled An Account of Some Experiments with Portland-Cement-Concrete Combined with Iron as a Building Material, with Reference to Economy of Metal in Construction and for Security against Fire in the Making of Roofs, Floors, and Walking Surfaces, in which he reported his experiments on the behavior of reinforced concrete. His work played a major role in the evolution of concrete construction as a proven and studied science. 

Mr. E L. Ransome, an English engineer, was an early innovator of reinforced concrete techniques at the end of the 19th century. Using the knowledge of reinforced concrete developed during the previous 50 years, Ransome improved nearly all the styles and techniques of the earlier inventors of reinforced concrete. Ransome's key innovation was to twist the reinforcing steel bar, thereby improving its bond with the concrete. In April 1904, Julia Morgan, an American architect and engineer, who pioneered the aesthetic use of reinforced concrete, completed her first reinforced concrete structure.

In 1906, the National Association of Cement Users (NACU) published Standard No. 1 and, in 1910, the Standard Building Regulations for the Use of Reinforced Concrete. 

How steel reinforcement helps – a concrete is nothing but an artificial stone, manufactured by man, binding fragments of natural rocks with cement. Any concrete or natural rocks are very strong in compression but very weak under tensile of bending loads. To overcome this shortcoming of concrete, engineers, leveraged the favourable tensile properties of mild steel, introduced MS round bars / rods in the tensile zones of concrete members. Off late twisted MS bars are being used in 100 out of 100 structures for its better bonding with the concrete. Twisted MS bars – TMT or HYSD enabled engineers to design mind blowing unique structures with high strength, durability, sleek and aesthetic, which probably were unthinkable before the start of usage of reinforcing steel.

There are a lot of steps that are involved in building your dream home. TMT bars are one of the most essential materials used in the home building process in India. They are durable with a high tensile strength that helps to create a concrete structure that stays strong for a lifetime. Hence, they are reliable and preferred mostly for all kinds of construction works. TMT bars ensure stability, durability, longevity and safety to the structures that are to be created.

Here are few essential factors that one needs to keep in mind before buying

TMT Bars in Chhattisgarh

1. Grade Check :

There are three grades of TMT steel bars that one needs to keep in mind – Fe 415, Fe 500 and Fe 550. Higher the grade of the TMT Bars, greater is the strength. But with higher grades, the ductility may reduce, which is not suitable for places which are prone to earthquakes. Lower grade TMT Bars has lesser strength and much higher flexibility whereas higher grade TMT bars have more strength and lesser flexibility.

2. Reputation Check :

It is very important to check the reputation and brand value of any product we are willing to buy especially the right TMT bars. Checking BIS certification and its brand reputation is very important.

Dream houses are painstakingly designed to an individual’s preference and are filled with things suited to their taste. But building a house is not a simple task. Attention must be paid right from choosing the correct TMT bars to selecting the perfect shade of the paint. The common mistakes to avoid while constructing the dream house are mentioned below:

1.  The First Mistake - Not choosing the right plot

People often compromise on the plot location in order to reduce the price of the land. But it is imperative that the dream house has access to clean water, public transport, schools and hospitals nearby. Only 58.2% rural houses and 80.7% of urban households have access to drinking water in their locality. (Source : ).


choosing the correct TMT bars

2. The Second Mistake - Not spending time on planning

An engineer should be hired and layout designs, floor plan etc should be devised before starting the construction. The lifestyle and habits of the customer are taken into account and the house is designed accordingly. Location of the bedroom, kitchen, living room should be decided along with the space allocation for each. This helps in budgeting the house properly. They also save a lot of time because pre-planned houses were built 102% faster. (Source:

3. The Third Mistake – Not Choosing the right TMT Bar:

Building a dream house is a once in lifetime process for many. MSP steel and MSP tmt bars ensure that the foundation of the house is sturdy and can withstand all weather conditions. 

Investing in good tmt bars like ones from MSP,  one of the top TMT bar manufacturers in India will make sure that house is sturdy and can be used by multiple generations. Good quality cement and bricks ensure that you have laid the strong foundation which can stand for ages.


Your Dream House From Turning Into Reality

4. The Fourth Mistake - Last minute changes in planning

Housing plans are made after consultation with an engineer, an interior designer and the contractor for construction. This helps in getting a proper budget quote for the dream house. Making last minute changes in the designs and floor plan can shoot up the budget and potentially ruin the look of the house. Some people tend to cut down the room space in order to save money. This results in poorly ventilated, dark rooms and hallways. Even if there are no changes in plans, it is considered a good practise to set aside some contingency money which can come in handy in case of any unfortunate circumstances.

5. The Fifth Mistake - Not considering the future needs

The customers anticipate their future needs right now and make necessary accommodations for it. Additional rooms and a larger living room should be made available for kids. For pets the plot should have parks and jogging areas in the vicinity. Or the house can be constructed with a good resale value which can be sold and moved out of if there are changes in the family of the individual in future.

A construction project is a huge venture consisting of different stages. Besides, it is one of the ideas which demand a considerable amount of time to ponder over it before you actually go for it. Moreover, you also need to keep things in your budget because more often than not, an unplanned construction can push you in debt.

It is also important that you do not compromise on the quality of steel manufacturing companies if you are looking for a construction anytime soon. This is because we all want our homes to be safe and durable for the long years ahead. Therefore, we never want it either. However, there are easier and more feasible ways to cut your cost out there.


Budgeting things are difficult and more so when it comes to construction. So, you need to be careful about where to save your money.

We know that you cannot look beyond the best TMT bar manufacturers in India, but there are a lot of other things that you have to keep in mind to reduce your building expenses.

Check them out:


A construction might seem to be a never-ending process but you must be there most of the times. Overseeing things from a distance is good but not the best of the process when it comes to construction.


From the slightest choices of colour and design to the biggest of the decisions, you need to stay there to tailor things according to your dreams.


It’s better to go through the works of a list of contractors before going for a particular one. A good contractor should not only give their best in terms of the product and quality but also suggest exclusive ideas to make things better on site. Most importantly, they should always go with the top TMT bar manufacturers India to build a durable architecture.



Technological advances are one of the biggest assets of this era and it is for the same reason that we consider ourselves to be ahead now than we were any time before. From building equipment to building materials, technology is witnessing a conspicuous rise. The Steel manufacturing companies India have also joined the league and are up for huge achievements in the upcoming years.

Technology sprawls around all of the present industries and construction is one of the prominent industries among them. So, never hesitate to seek technical help when it is available.


The trend of DIY is not only helpful in construction but also a range of other activities. Doing it yourself doesn’t come with any regrets. Apart from saving your precious bucks, doing things yourself would also tailor things according to your wish.



Most of the contractors won’t let you have a grab at the raw materials, their pricing and the unused materials. However, if you have an eye for saving then you can perhaps save the excess materials/leftovers in the future. This will usher cost-effectiveness.

With all this, you always need to remember the best TMT bars Kanpur for an added layer of quality and security in your next construction. The best steel manufacturers in Bhubaneswar is now also available as the Top TMT bar in Lucknow with the selfsame quality. You can also go for the steel manufacturers in Odisha if your project is nearby.

As the novel coronavirus spreads across the globe affecting over 200,000 persons with around 8,700 deaths reported to be caused by the Covid-19, businesses and economies are being adversely affected in an unprecedented manner.

Governments are hurriedly issuing advisories, announcing fiscal packages and banks are assisting in whatever ways they can to curb the fallout of the pandemic on business enterprises.

With China badly hit, all industries the country caters to globally, have also taken a beating. Take for instance the steel industry. Prices in China, which produces over half the world’s steel, have slumped like never before because the epidemic spread from China’s Wuhan.

With few buyers opting to purchase steel from the giant, an inventory has piled up, driving down the prices of steel globally. However, this could play to the benefit of the Indian steel industry in that people are looking for an alternative supply-chain market, especially for the manufacturing and auto components sector.


Steel manufacturers in India are saying that buyers across the globe are choosing not to be dependent on any one country for their purchases. Also, since the impact of the outbreak has been comparatively minimal in India, the steel manufacturing companies in India have not been adversely affected yet. Sectors like steel, housing and agri-businesses are still positive in India, experts say. The Automobile industry is the only one not showing signs of recovery, though it is said to start picking up by the second half of 2021.


The only aspect which remains related to the build-up of inventory in China is whether the stock will be consumed locally or exported. The price of steel has reacted to the build-up the most in South East Asia since there are fears that the stock pile will end up in the markets of South East Asia.

Experts claim that while there has been some pressure on steel prices in Europe and India, the prices have not yet dropped. Prices that could have kept increasing have slowed down in their increase slightly and a bush-pack is being experienced by the steel industry in India.

In fact, by some reports, Indian companies might face a pricing pressure of about $30 a tonne in April, May and June this year, rating agency India Ratings (Ind-Ra) said. However, the impact of the virus on prices can be determined fully only after major manufacturers like Japan, South Korea, and the US reveal how the demand-supply-chain has been affected in their geographies respectively.

The report stated, “China’s local steel demand has reduced drastically in Q120 (first quarter of 2020) creating an increased inventory pile-up of about 20 per cent year-on-year (y-o-y), leading to steel price pressures globally and restricting any major price increases in India over March 2020”. It further stated, “In a pessimistic scenario of the spread of virus going beyond April 2020 up to June 2020, China 2020 steel demand growth and global steel demand growth may be impacted by 200-300bp and 200bp (basis point), respectively”.

As spring takes a quick exit, enters the summer season. The latter is distinguished for being hot and humid throughout the Indian subcontinent during the daytime, with little respite in the nights. With the warm season intensifying each day and the monsoon being far away, you must be looking to keep your house less of a furnace.

Well, it’s not too difficult a task when it comes to breathing cool even in the hot season. Yes, you can keep your house from being a furnace by using some simple hacks. With your favorite Steel manufacturing companiesyou need not worry a bit.


The summer season can quickly get on your nerves when keeping your cool is the only thing you look for and if you are still confused on how to do it. Then, we show the way here:

Remember – If you are planning to build a new house, then there are two things you need to care for, which are insulation and airing.


Conduction is the most common way that spreads the heat throughout your house. This process distributes heat from one solid body to another without moving. Therefore, to prevent this mechanism from conducting heat, you need to insulate every other joint of your house, like the walls, roof, doors, windows, and other partition walls. Furthermore, you can also cover up the different sections of your home that are exposed to the direct sunlight.


Though the days of summer are notorious for the extreme heat and the noticeable lack of any air flowing, the evenings are quite the opposite. The summer evenings, with the fresh winds blowing in, are often the only respite from the unbearable heat we endure during the day.

Moreover, the breeze in the evening also has the potential to cool the inside of your rooms. Therefore, it’s better to plan for cross-ventilation to let the mercury levels drop down inside for a comfortable night’s sleep. This process is also known as free cooling because it is an inexpensive process of cooling your house, which will also lead to reducing your electricity bills.


If you are planning to reduce the temperatures in the summers, then nothing is as cheap and effective a way as whitewashing the ceilings. You might still be wondering about its benefits, but once you try it, trust me, you won’t regret it a bit!

We hope that with these easy hacks, you can definitely try and keep things in control even when the summer is at its peak. We hope that with the Best TMT bar manufacturers in India, you stay home and stay safe in the season of coronavirus.
