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.

The values stated in inch-pound units are approximate. 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. Principles of Unconfined Compression Test, Chap 7. Note 1 The determination of the unconsolidated, undrained strength of cohesive soils with lateral confinement is covered by Test Method D Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.


Copyright – Dd2166. Free quote for buying Unconfined Compression Test equipment: The determination of the unconsolidated, undrained strength of cohesive soils with lateral confinement is covered by Test Method D 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 atm reduce significant digits of reported data to commensurate with these considerations.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, if any, associated with its use. As for the results, the axial stress is usually plotted versus the axial strain. Active view current version of standard.

In addition, they are representative of the significant digits that should generally be retained. The sample is then removed for measurement of the 2d166 content.

Detailed description of Unconfined Compression Test, Chap 7.

Unconfined Compression Test –

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. Pricing information and quote request on Geotechgate. Unconfined Compression Asmt UCT is a simple laboratory testing method to assess the mechanical properties of rocks and fine-grained soils.


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.

In general, The UCT can be conducted on rock samples or on undisturbed, reconstituted or compacted cohesive soil sample. Unconfined Compression Test Geotechdata.

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

In the unconfined compression test, the sample si placed in the loading machine between the lower and upper plates. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below astmm referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.
