A constitutive model has been presented which relates stress changes and strains in soils to three modulus functions. The three moduli can be obtained from normalized stress-strain behaviour in easily performed isotropic consolidation tests and (preferably undrained) triaxial compression tests. Models have been calibrated and validated for compacted sand-bentonite buffer mixtures with two different initial densities, for medium dense sand from China, and for stiff plastic clay from France. -from Authors
