Principles of Unconfined Compression Test, Chap 7.

The procedures used do not consider material variation, purpose for obtaining the data, special purpose studies, or any considerations for the user’s objectives; and it is common practice to increase or reduce significant digits of reported data to commensurate with these considerations.

It is beyond the scope of this test method to consider significant digits used in analysis methods for engineering design.

Copyright – Geotechdata. In the unconfined compression test, the sample si placed in the loading machine between the lower and upper plates.

It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. 006 information and quote request on Geotechgate. In general, The UCT can be conducted on rock qstm or on undisturbed, reconstituted or compacted cohesive soil sample.


Note 1 The determination of the unconsolidated, undrained strength of cohesive soils with lateral confinement is covered by Test Method D The values stated in inch-pound units are approximate.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, if any, associated with its use. Unconfined Compression Test Geotechdata. The determination of c2166 unconsolidated, undrained strength of cohesive soils with lateral confinement is covered by Test Method D The primary purpose of the Unconfined Compression Test is to quickly determine a measure of the unconfined compressive strength of rocks or fine-grained soils that possess sufficient cohesion to permit testing in the unconfined state.


Unconfined Compression Test –

As for the results, the axial stress is usually plotted versus the axial strain. Detailed description of Unconfined Compression Test, Chap 7. This measure is then used to calculate the asrm undrained shear strength of the clay under unconfined conditions.

ASTM D 2166 – 06 Standard Test Method for Unconfined Compressive Strength of Cohesive Soil

Unconfined Compression Test UCT is a simple laboratory testing method to assess the mechanical properties of rocks and fine-grained soils. In addition, they are representative of the significant digits that should generally be retained. Dry and crumbly soils, fissured atsm varved materials, silts, peats, and sands cannot be tested with this method to obtain valid unconfined compression strength values.
