Monier as a gardener not satisfied with the material available for making flowerpots.
Pot made by Clay was easily broken, so he began making cement pots which was not stable. 
To design a stable pot he used iron mesh with cement, later he found some possibilities in
the technique for cement concrete.

In 1875 the first iron-reinforced cement bridge ever built was constructed at the Castle of 
Chazelet.


Reinforced concrete, or RCC, is concrete that contains embedded steel bars, plates, or fibers that strengthen the material. The capability to carry loads by these materials is magnified, and because of this application RCC is used extensively in all construction. In fact, it has become the most commonly utilized construction material.
