Reinforcing steel is used to strengthen and hold the concrete in compression. Concrete is a material that is very strong in compression, but relatively weak in tension.
To compensate for this imbalance in concrete's behavior, rebar is cast into it to carry the tensile loads.
Steel bars or mesh of steel wires are used for rebar. To prefent damage, the iron workers place the bars or mesh with a minimal distance to the outside of the concrete inside the formwork.
