      Concrete provides the compressive strength required but not the tensile strength. To provide the necessary tensile strength, steel rods are used to re-enforce the concrete structure. TMT (thermo-mechanically treated) bars also known as 'rebar' or 'Sariya' provide more strength and ductility to the structure than their counterparts i.e. cold...
