The stress paths to which specimens are subjected in triaxial tests together with the yield surfaces, which may be exercised in different models of such a test are simulated. A laboratory testing on undisturbed clay soil samples was performed in order to characterize the stress-strain behaviour of the residual soils in Sao Paulo sedimentary deposit. The sample is tested under isotropically consolidated drained triaxial compression. Strain controlled procedure was used to simulate stress-strain relationships of the soil. Seven models are used; namely: linear elastic, Duncan-Chang hyperbolic, Mohr-Coulomb, Cam clay, modified Cam clay, new Mohr-Coulomb and Cap model. It was concluded that the results of Cam clay and Duncan Chang models are the closest to the experimental data under low confining pressures; 49 and 98 kPa. Both models exhibit parabolic stress-strain relationships while the linear elastic model results are far away from experimental ones especially at large stress levels. At high confining pressure; 196 kPa, the modified Cam clay best correlates the stress and strain.
