The research has been devoted to the theoretical interpretation and to the modelingof the mechanical behavior of Quaternary structured soils in the Western South-WesternSicily belonging to the complex calcarenitic-sandy-clayey. After a review about the state ofknowledge on the influence of textural characteristics such as fabric and bonding onmechanical behavior, this note presents the results of an experimental analysis by mean oftextural identification tests, oedometer tests, triaxial and isotropic tests. For each lithotypecritical state conditions and yield strength are defined.
