unconfined compressive strength of asphaltic conrete

INFLUENCE OF THERMOPLASTIC POLYMER ADDITIVES ON …

2.2.3 Unconfined Compressive Strength The unconfined compressive strength test is performed to determine the compressive properties of asphalt concrete mixtures. The compressive strength of the mixtures can be obtained through applying a compression load on the circular face of a circular specimen. The load is increased until failure occurs.

Influence of Nano Additives on Unconfined Compressive ...

It was concluded that the unconfined compressive strength increases by (13-25) folds after stabilization with asphalt emulsion at dry test condition. The implementation of lime shows that the cohesive strength is increased by a range of (93-517)% for absorbed condition, while it decreased by a range of (50-31)% at dry test conditions.

Unconfined Compression Test | Geoengineer.org

The Unconfined Compression Test is a laboratory test used to derive the Unconfirmed Compressive Strength (UCS) of a rock specimen. Unconfirmed Compressive Strength (UCS) stands for the maximum axial compressive stress that a specimen can bear under zero confining stress. Due to the fact that stress is applied along the longitudinal axis, the ...

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.
