This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, if any, asstm with its use. In addition, they are representative of the significant digits 0 should generally be retained. Send us an email to editor geotechdata. 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 sample is then removed for measurement of the water content.

ASTM D 2166 – 06 Standard Test Method for Unconfined Compressive Strength of Cohesive Soil

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. Free quote for buying Unconfined Compression Test equipment: 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 d2616 cohesion to permit testing in the unconfined state.


Unconfined Compression Test UCT is a simple laboratory testing method to assess the mechanical properties of rocks and fine-grained soils. The determination of the unconsolidated, undrained strength of cohesive soils with lateral confinement is covered by Test Method D In general, The UCT can be conducted on rock samples or on undisturbed, reconstituted or compacted cohesive soil sample. Active view current version of standard. Unconfined Compression Test Geotechdata. As for the results, the axial stress is usually plotted versus the axial strain.

It is beyond the scope of this test asrm to consider significant digits used in analysis methods for engineering design.

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. Can you edit this page?

In the unconfined compression test, the sample si placed in the loading machine between the lower and upper plates. The values stated in inch-pound units are approximate. This measure is then used to calculate the unconsolidated undrained shear strength of the clay under unconfined conditions.
