Rebar (short for reinforcing bar), known when massed as reinforcing
steel or reinforcement steel, is a steel bar or mesh of steel wires used as a tension
device in reinforced concrete and reinforced masonry structures to strengthen and aid
the concrete under tension. Concrete is strong under compression but has weak tensile
strength. Rebar significantly increases the tensile strength of the structure. Rebar’s
surface is often “deformed” with ribs, lugs, or indentations to promote a better bond
with the concrete and reduce the risk of slippage.
