Materials in Concrete


The principal ingredients that make up the concrete mix are: cement, fine aggregate, coarse aggregate, water, chemical admixtures, and mineral admixtures. Concrete used in construction may also contain reinforcing bars, welded wire fabric (wire mesh), and various reinforcing fibers. The quality of the ingredients, their proportions, and the way they are mixed all affect the strength of the concrete.
