The idea of this lab is to compare two different water to mixture ratios in concrete. When considering concrete, it is immediately evident that understanding it as a building material allows us to understand design limitations and requirements. During the lab, a .4 water ratio and a .6 water ratio are compared. A compression test and a slump test are performed on either mixture ratios. For the compression test, different cure times are also considered. During the slump test, both mixtures began with 7 lbs of cement, 15 lbs of fine aggregate, and 21 lbs of coarse aggregate. Then the appropriate amount of water was added, and the solution was mixed thoroughly. From there, the concrete mixture was
