The main purpose of R.C.C is to resist developed tensile strength in structure.

RCCs are being used by regular practitioners due to the reason that  in an actual structure there occurs compression loads as well as tension loads. But RCC can carry both compression as well as tension force. PCCs are not used because they will fall straightway without giving sufficient warning before failure whenever they come across any tensile loading.

The main purpose of using RCC is that to make the structure reliable to carry the tensile loads.

There are many advantages of Using RCC (Reinforced Cement Concrete) which you can see in the link in detail, but a few are as below:

  1. Long Serviceable life and less maintenance cost
  2. High yield strength
  3. Less skilled labor is required
