Expand Polystyrene is simply written as EPS, and it is newly used as a kind of embankment filler. Based on abroad studies to EPS mechanical properties, a further research on EPS has been done in this paper. The triaxial test is used for the study. Duncan-Chang parameters of EPS are studied in the test. EPS block bearing test is studied by means of finite element method, and the Duncan-Chang parameters obtained from EPS triaxial test are proved to be right. The application value and the application extent are pointed out in conclusion, as is of valuable reference to real geotechnical engineering projects.
