2007-5-10 The purpose of this laboratory is to determine the unconfined compressive strength of a cohesive soil sample. We will measure this with the unconfined compression test, which is an unconsolidated undrained (UU or Q-type) test where the lateral confining pressure is equal to zero (atmospheric pressure). INTRODUCTION

In addition, in this test method, the unconfined compressive strength is taken as the maximum load attained per unit area, or the load per unit area at 15% axial strain, whichever occurs first during the performance of a test.

Read More2015-9-22 The unconfined compressive strength (UCS) of rock is a basic parameter for the design of foundations resting on rock. However, it is often very difficult to retrieve intact rock core specimens for the UCS test due to mechanical breaking or natural fracturing of the rock core during the drilling process. In such cases, it becomes obligatory to correlate UCS values based on the point load ...
