How Does the Ratio of Sand to Cement Affect the Strength ...

Increasing the Strength Adjusting the strength of concrete based on the ratio of sand to cement is easy to do. The closer you bring the ratio to an even one-to-one ratio of sand to cement, the stronger you will make the concrete. On the other hand, if you push the ratio in the other direction you will get a product that has slightly less strength.

Concrete Mix Ratios - Cement, Sand, Aggregate and Water

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. It means the more the .
