Concrete mix ratio of 1:3:3 – On mixing 1 part cement, 3 parts sand with 3 parts aggregate produces concrete with a compressive strength of 3000 psi. On mixing water with the three ingredients, a paste is formed that binds them together till the concrete mix gets hardened. The strength concrete is inversely proportional to the water/cement ratio.

More DetailsTotal Aggregate by cement ratio (A/C) decreases with increase in grade of concrete. For example, M20 grade of aggregate will have a higher A/C ratio than of M30. Higher the Aggregate/Cement ratio leaner the concrete mix, as cement content is lower. Concrete mix can be made more workable by fine tuning Aggregate/Cement ratio.
More Details· For example, a simple sand and cement mix should be at least 3 part sand (the aggregate) to one part cement. A strong concrete mix would be something like 1:3:5 (Cement, Sand, Coarse Gravel). In this case, both the sand and gravel are the aggregate. In pre-mix concrete, the aggregate is already mixed with the cement.
