43 Mixing Ratio in Concrete Besides water content also largely determine the strength & workability of concrete. Greater the amount of water, higher will be the workability of concrete (more fluid) however it reduces the strength of concrete. But if you keep water too low, workability of water will also reduce. Therefore, it will be difficult to place such concrete in the structure. Amount of water required may vary for same volume of concrete for various grades of concrete. Hence, a balance has to be found in the construction site during concrete mixing.

The higher percentage of recycled aggregate increases the crushing value of the aggregates .In Saudi Arabia, the general specifications for roads and bridges are mentioned in the fifth section (Nov. 1998), Indian Roads Congress and ISI have specified that the aggregate crushing value of the coarse aggregates used for cement concrete pavement at surface should not exceed 30%. For aggregates used for concrete other than for wearing surfaces, the aggregate crushing value shall not exceed 45%, according to the IS (Indian Standard) code

Reducing the water-cement ratio increases the compressive strength
