Materials for civil engineering please
I have a question I really would be thankful if I had some help
For the mix design in the fresh concrete.. I've got the compressive strength 6525 psi, I didn't find it in any table to find the w/c (water-cement ratio), what should I do and if there is a formula for it what it is?

Not my field , but is the water/cement ratio really relevant here?
Surely the compressive strength of cement depends on its constituent materials and their quality, not the exact water/cement ratio.

I would expect that American Concrete Institute would have some reports on w/c and compressive strength.
