Unconfined Compression Test UCT is a simple laboratory testing method to assess the mechanical properties of rocks and fine-grained soils. In general, The UCT can be conducted on rock samples or on undisturbed, reconstituted or compacted cohesive soil sample. The values stated in inch-pound units are approximate.

As 2d166 the results, the axial stress is usually plotted versus the axial strain. 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 –

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. 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.

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

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

The procedures used do d1266 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.


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. Unconfined Compression Test Geotechdata.

The sample is then removed for measurement of the water content. Can you edit this page?

In the unconfined compression test, the sample si placed in the loading machine between the lower and upper plates. It is beyond the scope of this test method to consider significant digits used in analysis methods for engineering design.
