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

D266 of Unconfined Compression Test, Chap 7.

Send us an email to editor geotechdata. 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. Note 1 The determination of the unconsolidated, undrained strength of cohesive soils with lateral confinement is covered by Test Method Wstm In the unconfined compression test, the sample si placed in the loading machine between the lower and upper plates.

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. Detailed description of Unconfined Compression Test, Chap 7. Pricing information and quote request on Geotechgate.

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

Free quote for buying Unconfined Compression Test equipment: The sample is then removed for measurement of the water content. 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.

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


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

The determination of the unconsolidated, undrained strength of cohesive soils with lateral confinement is covered by Test Method D In addition, they are representative of the significant digits that should generally d21166 retained.

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