Send us an email to editor geotechdata. 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 r2166 to permit testing in the unconfined state. The values stated in inch-pound units are approximate.

Active view current version of standard. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, if any, associated with its use.


Dry and crumbly soils, fissured or varved materials, silts, peats, and sands cannot be tested with this method to obtain valid unconfined compression strength values. Free quote for buying Unconfined Compression Test equipment: Unconfined Compression Test UCT is a simple laboratory testing method to assess the mechanical properties of rocks and fine-grained soils. Unconfined Compression Test Geotechdata.

This measure is then used to calculate the unconsolidated undrained shear strength of the clay under unconfined conditions. In the unconfined compression d21166, the sample si placed in the loading machine between the lower and upper plates. In general, The UCT can be conducted on rock samples or on undisturbed, reconstituted or compacted cohesive soil sample.

As for the results, the axial stress is usually plotted versus the axial strain.

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


Principles of Unconfined Compression Test, Chap 7. 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. It is beyond the scope of this test method to consider significant digits used in analysis methods for engineering design. In addition, they are representative of the significant digits that should generally be retained. Pricing information and quote request on Geotechgate.
