The research program presents the mechanical stress-strain characteristics of normally consolidated drained triaxial compression tests on sample size 50 mm diameter and 100 mm high compacted residual soil. Testing was carried out for both unreinforced and reinforced residual soil at consolidating pressure ranging between 0.10-0.80 MPa by using computer control triaxial apparatus. The unload-reloading tests were carried out at confining pressure 0.20 MPa for the determination of model parameters. Finite element analysis is made for the prediction of stress-strain behaviour by using non-linear elastic model constants. Comparison of numerical predictions and results of triaxial shear tests are made for verification of the model parameters. It is observed that the predicted stress-strain behaviour using model constants showed good agreement with the measured test results.
