  • Water-cement ratio

    The water-cement ratio is the ratio of the weight of water to the weight of cement used in a concrete mix A lower ratio leads to higher strength and durability, but may make the mix difficult to work with and form Workability can be resolved with the use of plasticizers or super-plasticizers Often, the ratio refers to the ratio of water to cementitious materials, w/cm Cementitious.
