ASTM D – 06 Standard Test Method for Unconfined Compressive Strength of Cohesive Soil
As for the results, the axial stress is usually plotted versus the axial strain. The sample is then r2166 for measurement of the water content. Unconfined Compression Test Geotechdata.
Pricing information and quote request on Geotechgate. The determination of the unconsolidated, undrained strength of cohesive soils with lateral confinement is covered by Test Method D The values stated in inch-pound units are approximate. Link to Active This link will always d166 to the current Active version of the standard.
Unconfined Compression Test 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.

ASTM D 2166 – 06 Standard Test Method for Unconfined Compressive Strength of Cohesive Soil
Can you edit this page? This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, if any, associated with its use. In addition, they are representative of the significant digits that should generally be retained.
This measure is then used to calculate the unconsolidated undrained d1266 strength of the clay under unconfined conditions. In general, The UCT can be conducted on rock samples or on undisturbed, reconstituted or compacted cohesive soil sample.
Send us an email to editor geotechdata. It is beyond the scope of this test method to consider significant digits used in analysis methods for engineering design.
In the unconfined compression test, the sample si placed in the loading machine between the lower and upper plates. 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 satm of reported data to commensurate with these considerations.
Unconfined Compression Test –
Detailed description of Unconfined Compression Test, Chap 7. 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.
Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. 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 Free quote for buying Unconfined Compression Test equipment: Active view current version of standard.
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.
