    CONCRETE IS ONE OF THE most widely used construction materials due to its good durability and relatively low cost. When reinforced with steel and other materials it has very good structural properties allowing for its use in numerous structures such as bridge decks, parking structures, marine piles and piers, and large buildings. The embedded steel does not corrode due to the high alkalinity of concrete which results from the portland cement used in its manufacture.
