Constitutive modeling of granular materials is still a central issue. Granular materials react with complicated mechanical responses when subjected to external loading paths. This leads to sophisticated constitutive formulations requiring large number of parameters. In order to avoid this, a micromechanically based model embedding both micro-scale and meso-scale is developed. The 3D-H model takes an intermediate scale (meso-scale) into account, which makes it possible to describe a variety of constitutive features in a natural way. The conventional triaxial compression tests are selected to examine the model performance.
