ABSTRACT
concrete is one of the most widely used building materials in the world, yet people still find it difficult to take samples correctly and manage the testing & certification process. failure to do this can result in the need to spend even more money Concrete is used mostly for structural purposes such as foundations, columns, beams and floors and therefore must be capable in taking the loads that will be applied One of the methods of checking its fit for purpose is to carry out a concrete cube test which measures the compressible cube strength of the concrete and relates directly to the required design strength specified by the designer. Testing of a hardned concrete plays on important role in controlling and confirming the quality of cement concrete works. On of the purpose of testing hardened concrete is to confirm that the concrte used at site has developed the required strength. The tests are made bycasting cubes or cylinders from the representative concrete. The standard compression tests specimens give a measureof the potentialstrength of concrete
