Detailed description of Unconfined Compression Test, Chap 7. Send us an email to editor geotechdata.

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 ast 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.

As for the results, the axial stress is usually plotted versus the axial strain. Principles of Unconfined Compression Test, Chap 7.


Dry and crumbly soils, f2166 or varved materials, silts, peats, and 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 This measure is then used to calculate the unconsolidated undrained shear strength of the clay under unconfined conditions.

The sample is then removed for measurement of the water content. Unconfined Compression Test Geotechdata. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, if any, associated with its use.

Unconfined Compression Test UCT is a simple laboratory testing method to assess the mechanical properties of rocks and fine-grained soils.

Can you edit this page? The values stated in inch-pound units are approximate. In the unconfined compression test, the sample si placed in s2166 loading machine between the lower and upper plates.

Unconfined Compression Test –

In general, The UCT can be conducted on rock samples or on undisturbed, reconstituted or compacted cohesive soil sample. Pricing information and quote request on Geotechgate.

In addition, they are representative of the significant digits that should generally be retained. 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. Active view current version of standard.

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.
