A reinforcement bar is most often used as a tensioning device to reinforce concrete and other masonry structures to help hold the concrete in a compressed state. Concrete is a material that is very durable in compression, but virtually without any strength in tension. To compensate for this imbalance in a concrete slab's behaviour, a reinforcement bar is cast into it to bear the tensile loads. Deformed bars are common steel or concrete reinforcement bars that are supplied with heavy ridges to assist in binding the reinforcement to the concrete mechanically.
