Quantity of Water is added in M20 grade concrete (All grades):-
As I was already given a detailed explanation about how to find out the quantity of Cement, Sand and Aggregate required for different grades of concrete. Here you can learn about the quantity of water is added in M20 grade concrete (all grades). We know that Concrete is a mixture of Cement, Sand, Aggregate and water. Water-Cement ratio in concrete possesses a great rank in acquiring desired strength of concrete. Different grades of concrete have different proportions. Same, Different grades of Concrete Mix design need a different quantity of water. Don’t forget, excessive use of water in concrete may lead to shrinkage and creep.
M20 Grade of Concrete requires approximate 200liters or 53 gallons of water
The Quantity of Water required for different grades of concrete is stipulated below:-
In below ‘M’ refers to Mix and value behind M refers to Compressive strength of concrete in KN/cu.m at 28 days.
Remember, the above-mentioned values are nominal and may vary depending upon the moisture content present in sand, cement and aggregate. We don’t use the sand which has a moisture content of more than 5%. As moisture content varies from place to place and time to time.
