This measure is then used to calculate the unconsolidated undrained shear strength of the clay under unconfined conditions. Send us an email to editor geotechdata.

In the unconfined compression test, the sample si placed in the loading machine between the lower and upper plates. In addition, they are representative of the significant digits that should generally be retained.

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

Unconfined Compression Test –

As for the results, the axial stress is usually plotted versus the axial strain. The procedures used do not consider material variation, purpose for obtaining the data, special purpose studies, or any considerations for the xstm 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. 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. The determination of the unconsolidated, undrained strength of cohesive soils with lateral confinement is covered by Test Method D Note 1 The determination of the unconsolidated, undrained strength of cohesive soils with lateral confinement is covered by Test Method D 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.
