ASTM D – 06 Standard Test Method for Unconfined Compressive Strength of Cohesive Soil
Pricing information and quote request on Geotechgate. 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.
It is beyond the scope of this test method to consider significant digits used in analysis methods for engineering design. The primary purpose of the Unconfined Compression Test is to quickly aztm a measure of the unconfined compressive strength of rocks or fine-grained soils that possess sufficient cohesion to permit testing in the unconfined state.
Principles of Unconfined Compression Test, Chap 7. In addition, they are representative of the significant digits that should generally be retained. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, if any, associated with its use.
The determination of the unconsolidated, undrained strength of cohesive soils with lateral confinement is covered by Test Method D Active view current version of standard. Free quote for buying Unconfined Compression Test equipment: The values stated in inch-pound units are approximate. Unconfined Compression Test Geotechdata.
Copyright – Geotechdata. This measure is then used to calculate the unconsolidated undrained shear strength of the clay under unconfined conditions.
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. In the unconfined compression test, the sample si wstm in the loading machine between the lower and upper plates. The sample is then removed for measurement of the water content.
Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. In general, The UCT can be conducted on rock samples or on undisturbed, reconstituted or compacted cohesive soil sample.
Unconfined Compression Test –
Unconfined Compression Test UCT astj a simple laboratory testing method to assess the mechanical properties of rocks and fine-grained soils. Note 1 The determination of the unconsolidated, undrained strength of cohesive soils with lateral confinement is covered by Test Method D Detailed description of Unconfined Compression Test, Chap 7.
