### Standard Weight Ratio Of Sand Aggregate In M10 Concrete

F.M of Ideal fine aggregate for concrete applications are in range of 2.6 to 2.9. Fine sand (lower F.M Value ) reduces the sand requirement in the total aggregate proportion. On the other hand, coarser sand will require higher sand in the total aggregate proportion to give a cohesive concrete mix consuming least cement.

The four basic ingredients for making concrete are Portland cement, sand, aggregate (stone) and water. The strength of concrete mixture depends on the ratio in which these four ingredients are mixed. 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.
