An analytical solution for the transient response of saturated porous elastic solids. (English) Zbl 0539.73128

The general forms for the field equations governing the transient response of poroelastic media given by Biot and by Zienkiewicz are compared and relations between the material constants are obtained. A one-dimensional analytical solution is presented for the situation where the solid and fluid materials satisfy Biot’s dynamic compatibility relation.
