The concept of large -span reinforced concrete structures

What are large -span reinforced concrete structures

It is customary to call more -span structures of buildings with spans over 40 m. Such buildings include hangars, covered stadiums, exhibition pavilions.

 The use of reinforced concrete large -span structures was made possible due to the appearance of thin -walled and pre -stressed reinforced concrete structures, as well as the development of industrial construction. Such designs have found application in coatings. Reinforced concrete coatings of large -span buildings compared to metal have advantages such as fire resistance, durability, steel savings, lower cost and insignificance of operational expenses.
