Mixing of concrete means to mix different ingredients and make concrete of the required strength. Concrete ingredients are usually cement, water, sand (fine aggregate), gravel (coarse aggregate) and may be admixtures too. The amount of each ingredient has to be perfect to achieve the required strength of the concrete. The strength, setting time and durability of concrete wholly depends upon the ratio of ingredients in concrete.
