Unconfined Compressive Strength (UCS)

The unconfined compressive strength (q u) is the load per unit area at which the cylindrical specimen of a cohesive soil falls in compression. Note: If the unit axial compression force per unit area has not reached a maximum value up to 20 percent, axial strain, shall be considered the value obtained at 20 percent axial strain.

Cohesion on the Geotechnical Information Website

Cohesive soils are clay type soils. Cohesion is the force that holds together molecules or like particles within a soil. Cohesion, c, is usually determined in the laboratory from the Direct Shear Test. Unconfined Compressive Strength, S uc, can be determined in the laboratory using the Triaxial Test or the Unconfined Compressive Strength Test. There are also correlations for S uc with shear ...
