ASTM D 2166 – 06 Standard Test Method for Unconfined Compressive Strength of Cohesive Soil
Unconfined Compression Test UCT is a simple laboratory testing method to assess the mechanical properties of rocks and fine-grained soils.

In addition, they are representative of the significant digits that should generally be retained. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.
The primary purpose of d266 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 f2166 testing in the unconfined state. 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.
This measure is then used to calculate the unconsolidated undrained shear strength of the clay under unconfined conditions. Pricing information and quote request on Geotechgate. As for the asgm, the axial stress is usually plotted versus the axial strain. Unconfined Compression Test Geotechdata.
Active view current version of standard. The values stated in inch-pound units are approximate. Free quote for buying Unconfined Compression Test equipment: This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, if any, associated with its use.
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.
Detailed description of Unconfined Compression Test, Chap 7. In general, The UCT can be conducted on rock samples or on undisturbed, reconstituted or compacted cohesive soil sample. Principles of Unconfined Compression Test, Chap 7.
Unconfined Compression Test –
The determination of the unconsolidated, undrained strength of cohesive soils with lateral confinement is covered by Test Method D 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 d266.
In the unconfined compression test, the sample si placed in the loading machine between the lower e2166 upper plates. The sample is then removed for measurement of the water content. Send us an email to editor geotechdata.

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