It is a quick way to approximate the strength of the soil, which is used inclassification of soil in terms of its consistency and in determination of the undrained cohesivestrength. The value of the cohesive strength determined in this experiment is used in bearingcapacity equation for both deep and shallow foundation design in a construction. For thisexperiment, the compressive strength is determined at the point when the specimen fails due toshear.DescriptionThe Unconfined Compression strength is usually determined in the lab test by applying anaxial stress to the soil specimen (cylindrical in shape) without confining pressure while makingobservations on the axial strains corresponding to each stress levels. The test is usually carried outon undisturbed samp ...
