Unconfined Compression Test UCT is a simple laboratory testing method to assess the mechanical properties of rocks and fine-grained soils. 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.

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 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

The values stated in inch-pound units are approximate. Active view current version of standard. In the unconfined compression test, the sample si placed in the loading machine between the lower and upper plates. The determination of the unconsolidated, undrained strength of cohesive soils with lateral confinement is covered by Test Method D In addition, they are representative of the significant digits that should generally be retained. Note 1 The determination of the unconsolidated, undrained strength of cohesive soils with lateral confinement is covered by Test Method D The sample is then removed for measurement of the water content.


Dry and crumbly soils, fissured or varved materials, silts, peats, and sands cannot be tested with this method d216 obtain valid unconfined compression strength values. Send us an email to editor geotechdata. In general, The UCT can be conducted on rock samples or on undisturbed, reconstituted or compacted cohesive soil sample. Detailed description of Unconfined Compression Test, Chap 7.

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