Reinforcement is any entity that is introduced into a system to:
- Resist [[tension]] forces
- Reinforce edges of openings in [[concrete]] slabs
- Minimize shrinkage cracking
- Control thermal expansion or contraction
There are generally two categories of reinforcement:
1) **Structural**- typically resists [[shear]] and [[tension]] forces, and sometimes [[compression]]
1) **Temperature**- primarily used to resist shrinking and cracking with small [[rebar]]
The most common types of reinforcement are [[rebar]] bars and [[WeldedWireFabric welded wire fabrics]]
