sand and stone ratio conversion

Concrete Mix Ratios

Concrete mix ratio is a vital topic in concrete mix design. 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.

Sand / Media Specifications

media for intermittent sand filters is a coarse sand with an effective size between 0.3 mm and 0.5 mm. The media sand grains should be relatively uniform in size having a low Uc value (less than 4.0) to promote movement of water and prevent clogging.

What Are the Mix Ratios for Cement and Sand?

 · Westend61/Westend61/Getty Images. The basic mix ratio for concrete is one part water, two parts cement and three parts sand. An alternative ratio is one part cement, two parts sand and three parts gravel with enough water added until the mixtures reaches the consistency of thick mud. Lime is also a common additive to the mix.

Porosity and Pore Size Distribution

greater porosity. In porous rock such as sand-stone, cementation or welding of particles not only creates pores that are different in shape from those of particulate media, but also re-duces the porosity as solid material takes up space that would otherwise be pore space. Po-rosity in such a case can easily be less than 0.3, even approaching 0.
