This is used to detect comment spam. For both sizes, each layer will be rodded 25 times in an even pattern, distributing the holes uniformly over the 331m of the mold.

Cover each cylinder with an appropriate sized cylinder bag and place it in a protected location free of astj and disturbances. They need time to cure under moist temperature-controlled conditions and they do not need to be overly exposed to the elements. Non-consent will result in ComScore only processing obfuscated 311m data.
Prevent the drying of the surfaces of the beams between the removal of the water storage tank and testing. When planning to mold and cure concrete specimens, it is required that tests 331m slump, temperature, and air content be performed unless entrained air is not of concern to the project.
