Usually the natural sedimentary soils possess structure more or less, which makes their mechanical response much different from the fully remolded soils. In this paper, the influence of soil structure on the mechanical response such as compressibility, shear, permeability is literately reviewed. It is found that the compressibility and consolidation behavior of structured and remolded soils can be divided clearly before or after the structural yield stress. The stress-strain relationship can be divided into two segments before and after the structural yield stress. Before the yield stress, the curve is elevating and after the yield stress the curve is decreasing. The increasing rate of pore water pressure increases after the soil reached yield stress.
