Reason For failure Of Concrete Structures:
A reinforced concrete member can fail mostly in the following cases:
- When the member is subjected to excessive tension, so as to exceed the permissible stress in steel.
- When the loading is such that the compressive stress in concrete exceeds its safe permissible value.
- On account of the slipping of the steel bars from concrete.
- When the concrete is subjected to excessive shear.
- Due to the bad quality of materials used, shrinkage, creep or thermal effects.
- When the member is subjected to extremes of temperature, aggressive liquids or gasses.
