The determination of the unconsolidated, undrained strength of cohesive soils with lateral confinement is covered by Test Method D Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. In addition, they are representative of the significant digits that should generally be retained. Principles of Unconfined Compression Test, Chap 7. Can you edit this page? 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 values stated in inch-pound units are approximate. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, if any, associated with its use. The axtm is then removed for measurement of the water content.

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 astj the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

Active view current version of standard. 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 possess sufficient cohesion to permit testing in the unconfined state.

Send us an email to editor geotechdata. In general, The UCT can be conducted on rock samples or on undisturbed, reconstituted or compacted v2166 soil sample.

Copyright – Geotechdata. 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.


Note 1 The determination of the unconsolidated, undrained strength of cohesive soils with lateral confinement is covered by Test Method D Unconfined Compression Test UCT is a simple laboratory testing method to assess the mechanical properties of rocks and fine-grained soils. Free quote for buying Unconfined Compression Test equipment: 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

As for the results, the r2166 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.

This measure is then used to calculate the unconsolidated undrained shear strength of the clay under unconfined conditions.
