The unconfined compressive strength test is performed as per IS 2720 (part X) at controlled rate of strain. Gives the compressive and shearing strength of clayey soil, both in undisturbed and remoulded condition.
Unconfined Compression Apparatus (Hand Operated, Proving Ring Type)
The unconfined compressive strength test performed as per IS:2720 (part X).
- Screw jack with frame and dial gauge holder
- Set of upper and lower platens, 150 mm dia.
- Cone Seating – 2 Nos.
- Proving Ring Adapter.
- HS30.225 Proving ring fitted with dial gauge, 5 kN capacity.
- HS29.15 Dial gauge 0.01 x 25 mm.
Unconfined Compression Apparatus (Motorized, Proving Ring Type)
Same as HS22.10 except that the loading unit is motorised and the gear system provides three different rates of strain 1.25 mm, 1.5 mm and 2.5 mm/min. The unit operates on 220V single phase supply.
