In order to investigate the 1D (one dimensional) compression behavior for China structured clays in a simple way, the experimental results on intact and reconstituted clay samples for 12 typical China natural clays located from south to north in China were analyzed. Based on these, a modeling method for destructuration behavior was proposed by introducing the bonding ratio and furthermore extended to disturbance soil model by using disturbance state concept. The proposed model was then validated by simulating 1D compression tests of various natural clays.
