In general, The UCT can be conducted on rock samples or on undisturbed, reconstituted or compacted cohesive soil sample.
In the unconfined compression test, the sample si placed in the loading machine between the lower and upper plates. This measure is then used to calculate the unconsolidated undrained shear strength of the clay under unconfined conditions. The values stated in inch-pound units are approximate.
The primary purpose of the Unconfined Compression Test is to quickly determine a measure of the unconfined compressive strength of rocks or fine-grained soils that possess sufficient cohesion to permit testing in the unconfined state.

ASTM D 2166 – 06 Standard Test Method for Unconfined Compressive Strength of Cohesive Soil
It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. The procedures used do not consider material variation, purpose for obtaining the data, special purpose studies, or any considerations for the user’s objectives; and it is common practice to increase or reduce significant digits of reported data to commensurate with these considerations.
Note 1 The determination of the unconsolidated, undrained strength of cohesive soils with lateral confinement is covered by Test Method D As for the results, the axial stress is usually plotted versus the axial strain. Principles of Unconfined Compression Test, Chap 7.
