Grade Of Concrete and Water Cement Ratio


In this Article with video today I will teach you that how to Find Grade of concrete with water cement ratio in detail so after reading this article and watching video you will be able to to now about Grade of concrete and water cement ratio in detail.

We have Given Grade of Concrete:






So Here “M” Stands for Mix and Number is the characteristic compressive strengt of concrete after 28 days. and its based on the direct compressive test.

So, There for if I take M5 Grade Concrete so it means that concrete will gain the strength 5N/mm2 ater 28 days and M7.5 means that this is the strength of concrete 7.5N/mm2 after 28 days.

So , For all grade of concrete we used the same formulas.

Now the below Chart is for Grade of concrete and their Mix Ratio
Grade   Mix Ratio (Cement : Sand : Aggregate)
M5 1 : 5 : 10
M7.5 1: 4 : 8
M10 1 : 3 : 6
M15 1 : 2 : 4
M20 1 : 1.5 : 3

If you want to find the quantity of water for concrete mix so use the given formula:

Grade of cement   Water per bag (50 kg) cement
M5 60 litre
M7.5 45 litre
M10 34 litre
M15 32 litre
M20 30 litre
