The water-cement ratio (w/c) is the weight of water compared to the weight of cement in a concrete mix. A lower w/c ratio indicates a stronger, more durable concrete while a higher w/c ratio indicates a weaker concrete mix. Generally, concrete with a w/c ratio between 0.4 and 0.6 is most commonly used, although some mixes may use a ratio as low as 0.35 or as high as 0.8.
