Unconfined Compressive Strength Testing System


Unconfined Compressive Strength System

The Unconfined Compressive Strength Testing System is designed to apply a steadily increasing axial compression to a cylindrical specimen of cohesive soil or soft rock until failure occurs. A VJ Tech Advanced TriSCAN Pro Load Frame (or a Triplex Advanced Frame (50 kN (11240 lbf) only)) is used to apply the compressive force (measured with a Load Cell) and the axial compression is measured with an LSCT Displacement transducer. The test provides an immediate approximate value of the compressive strength of the specimen and Young’s Modulus and the Poisson ratio can be calculated when using on sample strain gauges or transducers
