The typical ingredients found in concrete are cement, water, sand and rocks. The ratio of the ingredients determines the strength of the concrete. The concrete could look porous if too much paste (cement and water) is used. If there is too much paste, the resulting concrete will crack easier. Therefore, the proportion becomes one of the most important features in mixing concrete
