Cubes are cast with the same concrete which is
being used in the structure. Concrete is filled up in the
mould in three equal layers, each layer being tamped with
the help of a bullet headed tamping rod of 16 mm φ and
600 mm length by giving 35 strokes in each layer.
Alternatively, the compaction can also be done using
needle vibrator but instead of inserting the needle into the
mould, the vibration should be given indirectly by placing a
wooden piece over the cube and touching the needle at
middle of the wooden piece.

Light marking of date and number is made on the
green concrete. The cube in the mould is covered with a
damp cloth. It is stripped only after 16-24 hours and then
submerged in clean water pond till the testing is done.
