Silty sand deposits exhibit low bearing capacity at different density levels and depths. It may be due to low frictional values and non-plastic behaviour in nature. This study focuses on response of silty sand under drained conditions of triaxial testing using hypoplastic model. The influence of soil state parameters i.e. void ratio/relative density, and consolidation pressure level on drained response of silty sands is examined from the model simulations. The model results are displayed graphically in terms of stress-strain curves, stress paths and volume change-strain plots. The results reveal that the response of soil is dependent on both the combination of density and consolidation pressure levels
