Unconfined Compression Tester for Rocks (AIM 217-52)

Ref. Standard : ASTM 2938


This equipment is used for determining unconfined compressive strength of intact rock core specimens. The rock sample is cut to length and the ends are machined flat. The specimen is placed in a loading frame and if required heated to the desired test temperature. Axial load is continuously increased on the specimen until peak load and failure are obtained.
