What is the Unconfined Compression test?

Unconfined Compression Data Sheet
Sample Geotechnical Report

LoadTrac III

The LoadTrac III load frame performs unconfined compressive strength testing under fully automated control with convenient remote monitoring and instant test results. The unconfined compression test allows you to quickly measure the compressive strength for cohesive soils and is a core offering for most laboratories. Once a soil sample is in place, and the test conditions selected, the system will run the entire test from start to finish.
