An iterative homogenization approach is proposed in order to predict the nonlinear hydro-mechanical behaviour of porous media. This process is coupled to classical and modified secant extended methods and linear homogenization predictive schemes. At convergence of the iterative process, same equivalent behaviour is obtained for any secant method, any simplified homogenization used for the linear comparison material and for any initial porosity of the media. An application to the study of the nonlinear behaviour of clayey sediments is presented. The model parameters quantification is based on oedometric experimental results for different clays.
