EFFECT OF WATER CEMENT RATIO ON CONCRETE. A lower ratio leads to higher strength and durability, but may make the mix difficult to work with and form. Work-ability can be resolved with the use of plasticizers or super-plasticizers. However, a mix with a ratio of 0.35 may not mix thoroughly, and may not flow well enough to be placed.
