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

Dry and crumbly soils, fissured or varved materials, silts, peats, aatm sands cannot be tested with this method to obtain valid unconfined compression strength values. Note 1 The determination of the unconsolidated, undrained strength of cohesive soils with lateral confinement is covered by Test Method D Send us an email to editor geotechdata.

The sample is then removed for measurement of the water content.

The values stated in inch-pound units are approximate. 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.


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

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

This measure is then used to calculate the unconsolidated undrained shear strength of the clay under unconfined conditions. Unconfined Compression Test UCT is a simple laboratory testing method to assess the mechanical properties of rocks and fine-grained soils.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety wstm, if any, associated with its use. The procedures 066 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.

As for the results, the axial stress is usually plotted versus the axial strain. In general, The UCT can be conducted on rock samples or on undisturbed, reconstituted or compacted cohesive soil sample.
