The unconfined compression test is an important method of determining shear strength of cohesive and semi-cohesive soils.
Test loads are applied to the specimen through a hand crank. The rate of strain can be regulated during the test by turning the hand crank at the desired rate. Loads are indicated on a proving ring and dial indicator assembly.
