Compaction induces anisotropy on soil deformational response due to preferential straining associated with the fabrication process. An experimental insight into the stress-strain response of Barcelona clayey silt is provided here. The material was statically compacted at low dry density to induce high collapsibility upon wetting (dry density 1.48 Mg/m3, water content 12%). Two types of controlled-suction tests were carried out: a) constant suction radial paths on as-compacted samples following different stress ratios (deviator stress / mean net stress: q/p
