Despite the relative macroscopic homogeneity, loess has diversed stiffness. The construction of the geotechnical model of the subsoil should be based on in situ tests. Proper description of soil behaviour is possible only with the use of data from many investigation methods, in particular allowing for statistical evaluation, such as CPTU and DMT. These tests provide a large set of data, enabling the identification of zones of similar stiffness and the derivation of deformation parameters. The paper presents the methodology of interpreting deformation parameters from in situ tests.
