A finite strain multiscale hydro-mechanical model is established via an extended Hill-Mandel condition for two-phase porous media. By assuming that the effective stress principle holds at unit cell scale, we established a micro-to-macro transition that links the micromechanical responses at grain scale to the macroscopic effective stress responses, while modeling the fluid phase only at the macroscopic continuum level. We propose a dual-scale semi-implicit scheme, which treats macroscopic responses implicitly and microscopic responses explicitly. The dual-scale model is shown to have good convergence rate, and is stable and robust. By inferring effective stress measure and poro-plasticity parameters, such as porosity, Biot’s coefficient and Biot’s modulus from RVE, the multiscale model is able to predict effective poro-elasto-plastic responses without introducing additional phenomenological laws. The performance of the proposed framework is demonstrated via a collection of representative numerical examples. Fabric tensors of the representative elementary volumes are computed and analyzed via the anisotropic critical state theory when strain localization occurs.
