Answer / vikram singh,(abe), lasa,belga

The concrete for which there is no use of steel or steel used is less in quantity than required for RCC is termed as PCC. But in case of RCC least amount of steel(as per desin) is essential. In PCC used reinforcement is skin reinforcement to avoid shrinkage cracking.But in RCC the reinforcement is provided to resist stress. Reference:---- IRC 21-2000.
