The sample is then removed for measurement of the water content. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.
Unconfined Compression Test –
Note 1 The determination of the unconsolidated, undrained strength of cohesive soils with lateral confinement is covered by Test Method D Active view current version of standard. In the aatm compression test, the sample si placed in the loading machine between the lower and upper plates. Unconfined Compression Test UCT is a simple laboratory testing method to assess the mechanical properties of rocks and fine-grained soils.
As d21166 the results, the axial stress is usually plotted versus the axial strain. Copyright – Geotechdata. 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. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, if any, associated with its use.
It is beyond the scope of this test method to consider significant digits used in analysis methods for engineering design. Pricing information and quote request on Geotechgate.
ASTM D – 06 Standard Test Method for Unconfined Compressive Strength of Cohesive Soil
This measure is then used to calculate the unconsolidated undrained shear strength of the clay under unconfined conditions. Unconfined Compression Test Geotechdata.
Principles of Unconfined Compression Test, Chap 7. 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.
Detailed description of Unconfined Compression Test, Chap 7. 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 or reduce significant digits of reported data to commensurate with these considerations.
The primary purpose of the Unconfined Compression Test is to quickly determine a measure of the unconfined compressive strength of rocks or wstm soils that possess sufficient cohesion to permit testing in the unconfined state.
