What is water cement ratio? W/C Ratio
What is the Water cement ratio?
- In civil engineering, Water Cement Ratio means the ratio between the weight of water to the weight of cement used in the concrete mix. Or the amount of water which we used in the cement concrete.
- we know that the water-cement ratio directly affects the strength of concrete If we use a limited amount of water for cement concrete so it will give us the good strength of concrete.
Why we use water in cement?
If we don’t use the water in cement concrete so we can not mix the concrete because the water can perform a good role in Concrete. therefore water is the main key for Cement concrete which can combine all the material with each other and give us the good strength of any Construction work.
Normally we used the water-cement ratio that falls under 0.4 to 0.6 as per IS Code 10262 (2009) for nominal mix M7.5, M10, M15, M20, and M25.
