The sample is then removed for measurement of the water content. Unconfined Compression Test UCT is a simple laboratory testing method to assess the mechanical properties of rocks and fine-grained soils. 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 awtm the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. As for the results, the axial stress is usually plotted versus the axial strain.

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. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, if any, associated with its use. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.
In the unconfined compression test, the sample si placed in the loading machine d21666 the lower and upper plates.
ASTM D 2166 – 06 Standard Test Method for Unconfined Compressive Strength of Cohesive Soil
In addition, they are representative of the significant digits that should generally be retained. 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.

ASTM D – 06 Standard Test Method for Unconfined Compressive Strength of Cohesive Soil
Free quote for buying Atm Compression Test equipment: It is beyond the scope of this test method to consider significant digits used in analysis methods for engineering design. Copyright – Geotechdata.
This measure is then used to calculate the aztm undrained shear strength of the clay under unconfined conditions. Note 1 The determination of the unconsolidated, undrained strength of cohesive soils with lateral confinement is covered by Test Method D 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.
Unconfined Compression Test Geotechdata.
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 d1266 sufficient cohesion to permit testing in the unconfined state. Principles of Unconfined Compression Test, Chap 7.
