Es hängt nicht nur vom aktuellen Spannungs- und Dichtezustand des Sandes ab, sondern auch von dessen Materialgeschichte aufgrund monotoner oder zyklischer Beanspruchung.

Hinreichend mitteldicht und dicht gelagerte Sande durchlaufen zuvor einen Zustand der Phasentransformation, in dem das Verhalten von kontraktant zu dilatant wechselt.
